In 2019/20 NHS England distributed a total of £78.4 billion across 191 CCGs in England. The overall funding equates to £1,318 per registered patient in England.

Funding per head is set to increase by an annual average of 1.7% in real terms between 2017/18 and 2023/24, rising from £1,274 per patient in 2017/18 to £1,396 in 2023/24.

The formula used to distribute funding means that CCGs with elderly populations, in urban areas, or in more deprived areas tend to have higher allocations than they would under a simple population-based formula.

The highest allocation per patient in 2019/20 is Knowsley CCG in Merseyside (£1,742), the lowest CCG allocation per patient is Oxfordshire CCG (£1,091). All of the 10 highest allocations per patient are CCGs in the North East and North West of England.
