Official figures published by NHS Improvement on Friday show the provider sector ended 2015-16 with a deficit of £2.45bn. This includes the benefit of dozens of capital to revenue transfers, as well as other “technical measures”.

Below we reveal the best and worst performing acute trusts in the four English regions, in terms of their surplus/deficit position as a proportion of turnover.

Where trusts have benefited from a capital to revenue transfer these have also been listed. Some organisations have failed to respond to enquiries about this, so HSJ does not have a compehensive list of transfers. See underneath the tables for more information on the methodology used.

Methodology

HSJ used trusts’ reported surplus or deficit position at the end of March. In most cases these were unaudited. A small proportion of trusts refused to provide their outturn position, and in these cases the latest available forecast was used. Trusts’ total income for 2014-15 was used to calculate the percentage of turnover figures, as total income for 2015-16 has not yet been published in many cases.
