Walker asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what was the financial allocation to the Sheffield Regional Hospital Board for the most 49W recent year; and how this compared with other regions, on a per capita basis.
§ Mr. Alison
The latest financial allocations per head of population for the year 1970–71 are as follows:—
These figures have been calculated by dividing the allocation of funds to Regional Hospital Boards by the estimated populations of the areas. They make no allowance for the fact that one Regional Hospital Board may provide services for patients who reside in the area of another Board, nor do they include the allocations of funds to Boards of Governors of Teaching Hospitals.
