Recent finance board papers for Rushcliffe CCG reveal that the CCG is £1.8m overspent against its contract with Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

There was an additional £1.6m overspend for patients treated by private providers via the trust.

According to the board papers, the CCG contract team are “investigating these numbers to see if the activity is real and relates to county patients.”

“At this stage it is a risk to the 2013/14 position but if it is valid there will be a charge in 2013/14 for this work which will have a negative impact on the position.”
