Tayside health board will have to wait until April to have further discussion on how to reduce a projected £8m deficit, after the financial information it had requested from trusts was not provided to its meeting last week. The board's £8m deficit is attributable to Tayside University Hospitals trust, which provided a preliminary report saying it believed it would have this level of deficit after achieving £6. 8m in savings. The trust will be looking for £8. 7m of cuts in the forthcoming financial year. A spokesperson for the board said: 'We have asked the chief executives to come back on how to extract £10m of savings next year. '
