FINANCE: Sheffield Children’s Hospital may end the year with a surplus of £5.5m, well above its original plans.

A report to the board says that the trust had a surplus of £3.9m at the end of month 10. Last month it was predicting a year end in the range £4.5m to £5m but a number of factors mean that it is now likely to be at the upper end of the range £5m to £5.5m.
