FINANCE: Coventry and Rugby clinical commissioning group can only assume its main acute provider contract is breaking even due to a lack of data.

July board papers said: “The University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire contract is shown as break-even due to the lack of robust contract monitoring data.

“A number of data issues are being investigated. Once anticipated adjustments are agreed it is expected that the contract will be performing approximately on plan year to date and this has been reflected in a break-even forecast for year end.”

Robust data was also not yet available to assess the financial impact of many quality, innovation, productivity and prevention initiatives.
