FINANCE: NHS Hounslow is £2.7m behind on its surplus plan at month eight, an NHS London report has said.

The west London PCT was predicting a surplus of £2.7m by this point in the year, as part of its planned year-end surplus of £4.1m but has only broken-even so far.

The NHS London report said: “Hounslow’s QIPP programme is heavily back ended creating additional uncertainty over delivery.”
