HC Deb 05 February 1986 vol 91 cc194-5W
Mr. Wilson

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will publish figures to show the revenue expenditure for 1983–84 and 1984–85 and the allocation for 1985–86, on teaching for each of the English regions and for the Board of Governors hospitals, showing the service increment for teaching with supplements expressed in cash terms and in cost per student.

Mr. Hayhoe

Most direct medical teaching costs, including the costs of pre-clinical years, are met by medical and dental schools themselves, financed by the University Grants committee. The additional service costs associated with teaching are however recognised in protected sums within regional health authority allocations: the service increment for teaching. The information requested on the sums allocated through SIFT is given in table 1.

Different funding arrangements apply to the special health authorities for the London postgraduate hospitals (formerly boards of governors hospitals) which do not receive SIFT. Instead, their general allocations take account of their special teaching role. Details of their revenue allocations for the years concerned are in table 2.
