This report finds that there is wide variation in the extent to which £79 billion in central funding allocated to local health bodies differs from target allocations that are based on relative need. In 2014-15, over three-quarters of local authorities, and nearly two-fifths of CCGs, are more than five percentage points above or below their fair share of funding per person. It makes recommendations towards ways in which funding could be allocated in a way to help reduce health inequalities.
