Other notes: "The Wellcome Trust committed 776 million pound in grant funding and direct charitable activities in FY 2013. However, we looked at the actual expenditures for the year 2013, which constituted 581.5 million pound (excluding ""direct and support and buildings fixed asset additions""). This number for grants is a slight overestimation for health research spending. Under Medical Humanities and engagement, various non-research grants are provided as well as other activities (e.g. running the Wellcome library), but these were not reported on separately, so are included as research.
