FINANCE: RIchmond CCG has used reserves and underspends in primary care commissioning and “corporate and public health costs” to offset overspends elsewhere.

The south west London CCG saw £6m overspends in acute commissioning and “non-acute commissioning” and £2.7m underspends in primary care commissioning and “corporate and public health costs” - the gap being filled by the use of reserves.

The CCG has a commissioning budget of £300m.
