FINANCE: Nottingham University Hospitals Trust’s capital programme is £8.038m under-spent.

This is against the phased expenditure profile for December (£6.223m at the end of November).

The main current areas of slippage against plan remain associated with radiotherapy expansion (£2.089m), BRUs (£1.464m), theatres maintenance programme (£1.933m), car parking (£0.990m), sterile services transfer (£0.365m) and seedcorn schemes (£0.570m).

The trust is forecasting capital expenditure of £39.470m, representing an under-spend against the revised plan (£42.246m) of £2.776m.

The capital plan remains over committed in planning terms by £16.609m, which is more than offset by identified slippage across the programme.
