Programme budgeting returns are based on a subset of PCT accounts data and represent a subset of overall NHS expenditure data.</p><p> </p><p>2. Calculating programme budgeting data is complex and not all healthcare activity or services can be classified directly to a programme budgeting category or care setting. When it is not possible to reasonably estimate a programme budgeting category, expenditure is classified as ‘Other’. Expenditure on General Medical Services and Personal Medical Services cannot be reasonably estimated at disease specific level, and is separately identified as a subcategory of ‘Other’ expenditure.</p><p> </p><p>3. The allocation of expenditure to programme budgeting subcategories is not always straightforward, and subcategory level data should therefore be used with caution.</p><p> </p><p>4. In order to improve data quality, continual refinements have been made to the programme budgeting data calculation methodology since the first collection in 2003-04. The underlying data which support programme budgeting data are also subject to yearly changes. Programme budgeting data cannot be used to analyse changes in investment in specific service areas between years. Users of the data should note that significant changes to the data calculation methodology were introduced in 2010-11.</p><p> </p><p>5. Figures for years 2003-04 to 2009-10 are calculated using provider costs as a basis. Figures for 2010-11 to 2012-13 are calculated using price paid for specific activities and services purchased from healthcare providers. PCTs follow standard guidance, procedures and mappings when calculating programme budgeting data.</p><p> </p><p>6. PCT figures used to calculate 2010-11 data differ from those previously published in the 2010-11 programme budgeting benchmarking spreadsheet. This is due to the correction of errors identified for five PCTs for this year.</p><p> </p><p>7. Aggregate PCT data supersede previously published England level programme budgeting data. England level data incorporated estimates of expenditure on healthcare conditions for the Department of Health, Strategic Health Authorities and Special Health Authorities. England level data is no longer published this data as aggregate PCT figures provide a more accurate and meaningful representation of the breakdown of NHS expenditure by healthcare condition.</p><p> </p><p>8. For 2004-05 onwards, figures are based on PCT spend on own population. This is calculated by adjusting net expenditure to add back expenditure funded from sources outside the NHS and to deduct expenditure on other PCT populations incurred through lead commissioning arrangements.</p><p> </p><p><strong> </strong></p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p><strong> </strong></p><p> </p>

In addition , we are working to reduce the cost of agency staff by, where it is possible and appropriate, requiring the NHS to use existing frameworks (e.g. trusts receiving financial help under the Health and Social Care Act 2012) so they can secure agency staff at market rates.</p><p> </p><p><strong> </strong></p><p> </p><p><em>Notes:</em></p><p> </p><p>The figures reported by FTs were different in definition from those collected from other organisations before 2012-13, and were different in status. FTs published figures for “Agency/contract” expenditure in their annual audited accounts. Other organisations did not provide this level of detail in their audited accounts, but reported expenditure on “Non-NHS Staff” in annual Financial Returns. These returns followed on after the accounts and were reconciled to them, but were not part of the audited accounts.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Financial Returns were discontinued in 2013 to reduce the burden on the NHS. At the same time, the definition was aligned with FTs as “Agency/contract”. Excluded from the “Agency/Contract” category are costs of staff recharged by another organisation where no element of overhead is included i.e. where the staff costs are shared between the NHS trust and other bodies; staff on secondment or on loan from other organisations; amounts payable to contractors in respect of the provision of services (for example, cleaning or security).</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The figure for 2009-10 includes primary care trusts (PCTs). PCTs provided significant amounts of patient services (in 2010, 19% of NHS nurses were employed by PCTs), and most of these services have transferred into trusts. It is not possible to separate out PCT expenditure between provider and commissioner costs.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>For the first time, the Department collected unaudited financial data from NHS trusts for 2013/14 on Contract and Agency staffing costs and income to give a net expenditure figure. The data was collected on the NHS Summarisation Schedules that form the basis of the Department’s Annual Report and Accounts</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>A greater number of people die, or are admitted to hospital, during the winter than any other time of year. There are, on average, around 25,000 excess winter deaths each year in England; for every one excess winter death it has been estimated that there are approximately eight extra hospital admissions.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The causes of excess winter death and illness are complex and interlinked, and include circulating diseases such as influenza, cold temperatures and wider determinants of health, such as poor housing. It is difficult to precisely attribute the relative impacts of each on overall levels of death and illness and there is a degree of variation year on year.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Cold weather directly increases the risk of heart attacks, strokes, lung disease, flu, falls and injuries and hypothermia. Indirect effects of cold include mental health illnesses such as depression, risk of carbon monoxide poisoning if appliances are poorly maintained or poorly ventilated, and disruption to service provision. Some groups, such as older people, very young children, and people with serious medical conditions are particularly vulnerable to the effects of cold weather.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Public Health England publishes the Cold Weather Plan for England to avoid preventable illness and deaths in winter by setting out a series of actions for organisations, communities and individuals, to take throughout the year.</p><p> </p><p><strong> </strong></p><p> </p><p><strong> </strong></p><p> </p>
