FINANCE: Frimley Park Hospital Foundation Trust is forecasting an outturn surplus of £5.1m against a plan of £3m for 2012-13.

The year-end forecast surplus has increased slightly on the figure reported in January, according to board papers for April.

“This is as a result of the increased activity levels matched by a reduction in the amount held back for PCT challenges,” the papers stated.

“However, some additional costs are forecast to be incurred in the last month of the year and so these have been factored into the outturn figure.”
