<p>NHS England is responsible for decisions on the weighted-capitation formula used to allocate resources between clinical commissioning groups. This process is independent of Government. NHS England takes advice from the Advisory Committee on Resource Allocation, a group of academics and other experts.</p><p> </p><p>Target allocations include three adjustments that specifically support remote or sparsely populated areas:</p><p>- an emergency ambulance costs adjustment to reflect longer travel times in sparsely populated areas;</p><p>- an adjustment to remove from the formula supply induced demand in urban areas where people live close to a hospital; and</p><p>- an adjustment to support continued provision by hospitals with 24 hours, seven days a week accident and emergency services that are remote from the wider hospital network and have unavoidably higher costs.</p><p> </p><p>The tendency for rural populations to be older, is naturally taken into account in the overall formula.</p>
