Last Minute PCT Cuts estimated at £1,280,000,000
I now know the exact total as to what is being cut from PCTs as a result of the removal of the Purchaser Protection Adjustment. That figure is £320,229,000.
If we use an estimate of 1.5% of the clawback/topslice from PCTs and assume that PCTs spend £64bn (actually £64.309 bn). Then that figure is £960M.
This gives a total last minute cut of £1.28bn,
