§ Mr. Needham
The revenue allocation for each board in 1987–88 and the corresponding per capita figure, based on mid-1986 population estimates are:
£ £ per capita Northern 95,472,000 252 Southern 90,199,000 312 Eastern 320,439,000 499 Western 88,344,000 344
This information is meaningless for the purposes of comparison between boards. Estimated board populations do not coincide with actual catchment populations for many services; for example, regional medical services, acute hospital services, psychiatric and mental handicap hospital services.
