Hospital NHS Trust and to total national health service expenditure is shown in the table in cash terms. Figures for London prior to 199697 have not been provided as they are not comparable.
|Kingston Hospital NHS Trust||South West London||London||Total NHS (England)|
|Total income (£000)||Percentage increase||Expenditure (£000)||Percentage increase||Expenditure (£000)||Percentage increase||Expenditure|
Comparisons year on year will be affected by the local reconfiguration of NHS bodies and services. These may be explained in accounts published by the individual NHS bodies but not collected centrally.
Figures for London and South West London are the expenditure by strategic health authorities, predecessor health authorities and primary care trusts within the current five London strategic health authority areas and the South West London strategic health authority area, respectively.
NHS Expenditure by area is taken from audited health authority accounts and primary care trust summarisation schedules, which are prepared on a resource basis and therefore differ from cash allocations in the year. The expenditure is the total expenditure by the relevant health authorities, and the commissioner costs of the primary care trusts.
The total NHS expenditure cannot be identified by health authority area because the majority of general dental services expenditure is not included in the individual health authority accounts or primary care trust summarisation schedules and is separately accounted for by the Dental Practice Board. The majority of pharmaceutical services expenditure is accounted for by the Prescription Pricing Authority and not by health authorities or primary care trusts.
Figures for 200203 and 200304 based on strategic health authority areas have been adjusted to eliminate expenditure, which would be double counted where an authority acts as a lead in commissioning healthcare.
Total NHS expenditure is the total net NHS expenditure for England where expenditure pre 19992000 is on a cash basis; expenditure figures from 19992000 to 200203 are on a stage one resource budgeting basis; expenditure figure for 200304 are on a Stage two resource budgeting basis. Figures are not consistent over the full period, hence no comparisons should be made across different periods. The percentage increases for 19992000 and 200304 have therefore not been provided.
Mr. Edward Davey: To ask the Secretary of State for Health (1) what the annual percentage increases in total budgets for (a) Kingston hospital and (b) the NHS in (i) South West London, (ii) London and (iii) England are for (A) 200506, (B) 200607 and (C) 200708; 
Mr. Hutton [holding answer 20 January 2005]: The Department does not allocate funding directly to national health service hospitals. Allocations are made at a primary care trust (PCT) level. Work on 200607 and 200708 PCT allocations is ongoing. The information requested is shown in the following tables 1 and 2.
|£ million||Percentage increase|
|South West London||2,260||9.3|
|England (£ million)||Percentage increase|
Helen Jones: To ask the Secretary of State for Health (1) how many people resident in the 20 per cent. most deprived wards are serving as non-executive directors on each NHS trust in the north-west; 
Miss Melanie Johnson [holding answer 20 January 2005]: This information is not held centrally. The appointment of chairs and non-executive directors to national health service trusts has been delegated to the NHS Appointments Commission. Sir William Wells, chair of the NHS Appointments Commission has been asked to write to my hon. Friend.
Dr. Francis: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what arrangements he will make to ensure that there is no diminution in the quality of the training provided when the NHS university is replaced by the NHS institute for learning, skills and innovation. 
Mr. Hutton: The national health service institute for learning, skills and innovation will integrate and strengthen the way we support people development, service improvement and technical innovation in the NHS. The changes will build on the learning achieved from the best of the NHS university's existing programmes.
The work of supporting the development of a quality assurance framework for learning in the NHS is undertaken by Skills for Health, the sector skills council for health. This work will continue unchanged.
Likewise, we remain committed to enhancing skills through the Skills Escalator and through mechanisms such as NHS learning accounts, national vocational qualifications (NVQs), adult literacy, numeracy and language skills (Skills for Life), with £180 million to be invested during the three years from April 2003.
We have further demonstrated our commitment to improving the learning opportunities for NHS staff through the appointment of Professor Bob Fryer as the new national director for widening participation in learning.
