Health Board funding

I'm trying to get to the bottom of the real funding awarded to the Health Board.

According to the papers today, the allocation for 2009/10 is £56.6m for Revenue and £1.9m for Capital.

I'm digging back and not finding any website that can authoritatively confirm previous allocations, but I have found that - according to a report in the Gazette -the Capital Allocation for 2007/08 was £3.85m, and according to a Parliamentary answer in March 2008 (Para S3W-10436), the provisional Revenue Allocation for 2008/09 was £55.2m.

The Revenue allocation has increased by 5.5% - which won't cover salary increases without cuts being made - and the overall allocation appears to have dropped by £0.5m, which is a bit of a kick in the teeth.

Can someone (in the Health Board?) guide us to more accurate numbers to shed some light on this, rather quiet, announcement.

You can always do a FOI for the information.
