FINANCE: The primary care trust is forecasting it will save around £1.5m more than its £24.7m savings target for 2011-12, according to the Greater Manchester PCT cluster’s latest finance report.
“NHS Manchester is now forecasting achievement of £26.2m of [quality, innovation, productivity and prevention] savings against planned schemes of £24.7m,” the paper states.
However, it continues: “This forecast includes non recurrent windfall savings of £2.6m and additional urgent care savings of £4.7m, offset by reduced savings of £4.3m in joint commissioning.”
It adds: “The QIPP team is now focussing on the certainty of the delivery of existing plans; the proportion of red rated schemes has reduced from 17 per cent at month six to nil at month eight, and 53 pe cent are now rated amber.”
