Weighted Capitation Formula

Mr. Stephen O'Brien: To ask the Secretary of State for Health (1) what the value of the weighting for (a) deprivation and (b) age is in the weighted capitation formula; [63915]

(2) what the average annual cost to the NHS is of a person (a) over 65 and (b) under 65 years in (i) deprived and (ii) non-deprived areas; [63916]

(3) what the average age of (a) population and (b) patients is for each primary care trust (PCT) area; and what the financial position of each PCT is estimated to be at the end of 2005–06. [63921]

Mr. Byrne: The weighted capitation formula has separate components for hospital and community health services (HCHS), prescribing and primary medical services to reflect the services for which primary care trusts (PCTs) receive funding. Each component has its own age and additional need weightings which are applied simultaneously to the population to produce a weighted population for each PCT, When expressed as an index centred around one for each PCT, the weightings in the HCHS component range from 0.85 to 1.25 for age and 0.71 to 1.52 for additional need.

Estimated expenditure in 2003–04 on HCHS was 2,073 for a person over 65 years and 517 for a person under 65 years. It is not possible to estimate this expenditure in deprived and non-deprived areas.

The mean and median age of the population at the time of the 2001 census and the 2005–06 month six forecast outturn position for each PCT has been placed in the Library. It is not possible to provide the average age for patients.

Notes:
Guide to quality:
The Coefficient of Variation (CV) indicates the quality of a figure, the smaller the CV value the higher the quality.
The true value is likely to lie within ± twice the CV e.g. for an average of 200 with a CV of 5 per cent., we would expect the population average to be within the range 180 to 220.
Key
CV}5%
* CV>5% and }10%
The median replaces the mean as the headline statistic. The weighted mean is the sum of the weighted values divided by the sum of the weights. The median is the value below which 50 per cent. of employees fall. It is preferred over the mean for earnings data as it is influenced less.
