NHS England is responsible for determining allocations of financial resources to Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs). Total annual budgets given to CCGs cover the majority of NHS spending. The allocations process uses a statistical formula to make geographic distribution fair and objective, so that it more clearly reflects local healthcare need and helps to reduce health inequalities.
This page contains the specific documents that relate to the allocations for 2014/15 and 2015/16.
Information on the latest allocations round along with papers and research reports can be found on the main allocations page.

The technical guide sets out the methodology and actual calculation of the allocations which were agreed at the 17 December 2013 NHS England Board meeting.
