Mr. Gray

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what the income per capita of the population is for primary care trusts in(a) Wiltshire, (b) Hampshire and (c)Berkshire. [97801]

Ms Blears

The funding per weighted head of population of primary care trusts (PCTs) is shown in the table, is calculated using the cash funding made by the Department of Health, and health authorities to those PCTs. PCTs also receive small quantities of miscellaneous income for fees and charges and this has not been included in the table.

From April 2003, PCTs will be funded directly by the Department of Health.
