Programme budgeting data is available at England and primary care trust (PCT) level for financial years from 2003-04 to 2010-11.
The tool enables commissioners to identify:
- how they spend their allocation over 23 disease categories
- how their disease category level expenditure is split across 12 care settings (for 2010-11) and
- how their expenditure distribution pattern compares with other commissioners nationally, locally or with similar characteristics.
The collection of 2011-12 programme budgeting data is currently underway and will be available towards the end of 2012.
