This paper sets out how we created look-up files to map between different commissioning geographies. This enabled us, for example, to estimate overall health funding at an area-level despite the different geographical bases of the various commissioners. We provide links to these look-up files.

In September 2014, our report Funding healthcare: Making allocations to local areas examined how £79 billion of central funding was allocated to local bodies to commission healthcare. As part of this, we wanted to understand how funding had changed over time, and the overall position of different local areas across various funding streams. This task was complicated by the fact that health commissioning is split across a number of different types of organisation, and that these organisations changed as part of the reforms to the health system.
