As for all local authorities, the London Borough of Bexley’s allocation is primarily based on historical National Health Service spend prior to 2013. Since 2019/20, adjustments have been made to the grant to take account of estimated cost pressures arising from an NHS Agenda for Change pay deal and the launch of routine pre-exposure prophylaxis commissioning. Differing levels of need and funding between local authorities has been taken into account when determining allocations. All local authorities received a cash increase in both 2020/21 and 2021/2022.
