The total budget of NHS Morecambe Bay CCG for 2013/2014 was in two parts. The CCG’s main allocation was £195.593m for commissioning NHS services for the local community. The CCG was also allocated £3.73m from which it was expected to cover all its running costs. A full breakdown of this is available in the Annual Accounts 2013–14 (pdf 330.2 KB).
Since 1 April 2010 all information relating to expenditure over £25,000 spent by NHS organisations must be published on its website. Monthly details will be published by the 15th working day of each month.
This is because the Government has set out the need for greater transparency so that the public is more easily able to hold public bodies and politicians to account.
‘Expenditure’ is all individual invoices, grant payments, expense payments, payments to GPs, or other such transactions that are over £25,000. Payments to staff are excluded from this disclosure.
