FINANCE: Greenwich CCG is aiming for £18.9m in QIPP savings over 2013-14 and 2014-15.

The board report said: “The CCG QIPP target required to balance the financial position across the two-year period of this plan is £18.9m net (£11.9m in 2013-14 and £7m in 2014-15). Our QIPP target in 2013-14 is slightly higher than originally expected because of the lower than anticipated uplift for growth and the impact of the acute outturn for 2012-13.

“We have plans to deliver the £11.9m in savings through a variety of schemes including additional benefits from schemes in 2012-13, planned activities that were included in our integrated plan and some newly developed schemes which will help us achieve the increased QIPP target.

“Clinical and executive leads have been appointed to all of the areas identified for QIPP delivery.”
