8th September 2008

The analysis of spending from 2004-2007 showed that the variation in spending was up to 3.4 times for mental health, 2.5 times for cancer and 2.2 times for heart and circulatory diseases. Professor John Appleby, of the King's Fund, said: "It does raise questions about the consistency of the decisions PCTs make."
