§ Dr. Mawhinney
Under the weighted capitation funding system, health authorities are funded for their resident population. Departmental guidance gives regional health authorities discretion to use their judgment about the precise distribution of funds which suits their districts' needs, based on the analysis of local information. The present allocation for Redbridge and Waltham Forest health authority is a matter for North East Thames regional health authority and the hon. Member may wish to contact Sir William Stavely, the chairman, for details.
