FINANCE: Warwickshire North clinical commissioning group is planning to make efficiency savings of £4.84m in 2013-14.

The CCG has identified potential quality, innovation, productivity and prevention savings worth £1.39m in “individual patient packages”, and £1.26m in admissions avoidance.

The remaining savings come from medicines management, outpatients and elective, and “other”.

At month two of 2013-14 the CCG was £290,000 behind the year to date savings target of £618,000, but put this down to the lack of information available.
