Tell us what you think of FTs’ financial position in what could be a crunch year for finances

The report’s author, Jason Dorsett, Monitor’s director of financial reporting and risk, will be taking part in an HSJ Twitter chat at 12pm on Monday 22 September to answer your questions about the report and the FT sector

Among the issues Mr Dorsett will be discussing are:

  • how FTs are performing against key national healthcare targets, such as accident and emergency waiting times, cancer targets and ambulance response times;
  • the sector’s financial position in what many people expect to be a crunch year for provider finances;
  • what regulatory action Monitor has taken against FTs this quarter and why; and
  • what action FTs should take to improve their financial and operational performance.

Please tweet your questions to @HSJNews or @MonitorUpdate using the hashtag #HSJchat, or post them underneath this article and we will put them to Mr Dorsett at 12pm on 22 September.
