FINANCE: North, East and West Devon Clinical Commissioning Group is forecasting it will miss its savings target for 2013-14 by more than a quarter.

The CCG’s non-integrated single financial environment report reveals it has a quality, innovation, productivity and prevention savings target of 2.6 per cent of its £1 billion allocation.

Of this £12.8m is transactional, £7.5m is transformational while the remaining £7.3m has not been identified. The return states it is 100 per cent likely this gap will not be filled.
