Dear Mr Burley,

 

Re:      Freedom of Information request (Our Ref: FOI-055201)

 

Thank you for your Freedom of Information (FOI) request dated 15 December
2017.

 

Your exact request was:-

 

“Please explain how the funding budget for healthcare- both primary and
secondary healthcare is calculated with respect to service personnel and
their families.”

NHS England holds information in relation to your request.

 

The NHS commissions acute services for service personnel and their
families, and the primary care of families who are not registered with a
military practice. The Ministry of Defence (MOD) is responsible for the
primary care of serving personnel and their families where they are
registered with a military practice.

The total budget for the NHS England Armed Forces Commissioning team is
£64m in 2017/18. In addition to funding for the non-specialised acute
services discussed here, this includes funds for additional
programmes/services in respect of veterans’ mental health and prosthetics.
The NHS budget for the non-specialised acute services it commissions is
constructed using the existing budget, increased each year to reflect
underlying pressures and required efficiency improvements. As an example,
for 2018/19, we assumed underlying pressures of 5.6%, based on our
assessment of price and volume pressures for non-specialised acute
services. From this an efficiency requirement of 2.5% is deducted, broadly
comprising a provider sector productivity improvement of 2% (as assumed in
the National Tariff) and a further commissioner efficiency of 0.5%. The
result is budget growth of 3.1%.

 

Primary care services for families registered with an NHS general practice
are funded as part of general primary care commissioning budgets.
