FINANCE: Kirklees PCT spent £1.8m more than plan during 2011-12, after agreeing with the SHA to spend the additional funds on “organisational change”.

The PCT was on course to make an £8.1m suplus, a reduction from its original control total of £9.9m.

Board papers said: “This amendment has been done to facilitate organisational change across the health economy that will reduce the recurrent cost base… We are forecasting to deliver the revised control total.”
