FINANCE: The north west London cluster is looking to review activity at Chelsea and Westminster Foundation Trust, which is £2m over plan to-date.
A cluster finance report said: “Over performance can mainly be attributed to critical care (£597,000), outpatient first appointments (£382,000), day cases (£372,000), A&E (£233,000) and outpatient procedures (£195,000).”
It added that it expects to win back £364,000 in activity challenges, “mainly from the pursuit of automated claims and anticipated credits from planned procedures with thresholds (PPwTs).
“A review is underway to benchmark the activity profile for critical care activity as the case mix is reflecting a higher acuity than expected,” the report said.
