FINANCE: The Oxfordshire quality, innovation, productivity and prevention plan was £1.3m below its savings target at month nine.

The primary care trust forecasted a £841,000 gap by the end of the year.

“This is due predominately to non-delivery of savings within the ‘managing variation in demand’ project and ‘urgent care’,” PCT board papers said.

“There remain some significant risks across OCCG work streams for which risk management and mitigation approaches are being drawn up.”

Oxfordshire CCG is responsible for more than £25m of the county’s £27m QIPP plan.

The CCG element was under delivering by £2.3m at month 9, and is forecast to under delivery by £2.5m at year-end.
