Could you please provide a total for the amount spent on the 'purchase of healthcare from non-NHS bodies' for 2015/16; and provide a breakdown of the contracts, including the sum of money spent on each contract, that make up the 'purchase of healthcare from non-NHS bodies' category in your annual accounts?

Review Procedure


We hope this provides the information required.  However, if it is felt
