What we spend and how we spend it

The following documents provide further information regarding what NHS England’s spends and how:

Payments over £25,000 we have made

NHS England is committed to meeting Government transparency requirements in relation to how we spend the money we are given. As part of this we will periodically publish information on the payments we have made with are over £25,000. For 2013/14, a summary of this spend information has been published in a single file. For 2014/15 the information will be published periodically.  You can see and download the information by clicking on the links below.

In the data file where the word ‘Removed’ appears against a payment line it means that we have decided that revealing the details of the payment could lead to the identification of an individual patient – the details of the payment have been removed to prevent this.

Please note, spend shown is for NHS England, and 23 Commissioning Support Units (CSUs) who provide support services to over 200 CCGs.
