PCT-level figures for 2004-05 onwards are net expenditure per head of unified weighted population, adjusted to add back expenditure from sources outside the national health service and to deduct expenditure on other PCT's populations incurred through lead commissioning arrangements.
2. SHA-level expenditure per head is calculated using the combined expenditure and population figures of each PCT within the SHA area.

Jenny Willott: To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many and what proportion of invoices submitted to his Department have been paid within 10 days in each month since October 2008; and if he will make a statement.

Payment performance was lower in February 2009 due to the short term impact on Welfare Foods and Healthy Start payments caused by the introduction of a new web based claims system. This system was introduced to bring significant benefits to some of the smaller suppliers who will receive their payments more promptly and more regularly. This new system also provides higher security and validation checks.
Mr. Graham Stuart: To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many (a) away days and (b) conferences that took place outside his Department's building attended by civil servants in his Department there have been since 2005; and what the cost was of each. 
Phil Hope: The Department is strongly committed to developing its staff and equipping them with the skills, knowledge and expertise they need to carry out their work. Away days and conferences make a significant contribution to such development.
Away days and conferences are typically arranged and booked by individual teams in the Department. No central records of these events are kept and to collect this information would incur disproportionate costs.
Mr. Stephen O'Brien: To ask the Secretary of State for Health on what occasions on (a) Monday 7 December and (b) Tuesday 8 December 2009 he had discussions with Ministers of the Department for Work and Pensions. 
Adam Afriyie: To ask the Secretary of State for Health on what pay band his Department's Chief Information Officer (CIO) is employed; whether the CIO is employed on a fixed-term or permanent contract; and what the size is of the budget for which the CIO is responsible in the period 2009-10. 
Phil Hope: Christine Connelly (Director General and Chief Information Officer), is in senior civil service payband 3, and was employed on a permanent civil service contract. The overall budget for which the Chief Information Officer is responsible is, in total, £1,485.321 million in 2009-10. This includes those costs of the National Programme for Information Technology (NPfTT) in the national health service which are expected to be incurred in the 2009-10 financial year.
