FINANCE: East and North Hertfordshire Trust has reported there is a risk of non delivery of activity reductions, part of the local efficiency plan.

The trust reported that the reductions in activity, which are the responsibility of the PCT, were a “long term risk”. The plans are part of a county wide Quality, Innovation, Productivity and Prevention (QIPP) plan.

It said there was a “lack of evidence currently of the PCT’s demand management schemes having the required impact” and a “lack of track record of delivery of change and demand management”.
