This field will provide additional detail about the actual source of the Department of Health funding. From April 1st 2013 this funding is allocated by Health Education England (HEE), with funding delegated to thirteen individual Local Education and Training Boards (LETBs).

Code 14 ‘All London LETBs’ is a code to be used for funding allocated jointly from all three London LETBs (codes 11, 12 and 13) working in partnership.

Code 99 ‘HEE funding not at LETB level’ is to be used for exceptional funding allocated at HEE level rather than at delegated LETB level.
