FINANCE: Two clinical commissioning groups were responsible for £2m of a £2.1m overspend on commissioning budgets by the end of month four, NHS Hertfordshire’s board has been told.

This was offset by underspends in other area - leaving the PCT with an overall overspend of £1.6m.

Budgets were overspent with many acute providers including Cambridge University Hospitals FT where the care of a single patient cost £411,000.
