Notes: 1. PCT-level Figures for 2003-04 are net expenditure per head of unified weighted population. PCT-level figures for 2004-05 onwards are net expenditure per head of unified weighted population, adjusted to add back expenditure from sources outside the national health service and to deduct expenditure on other PCT’s populations incurred through lead commissioning arrangements. 2. SHA-level expenditure per head is calculated using the combined expenditure and population figures of each PCT within the SHA area.
