FINANCE: Sheffield Health and Social Care Foundation Trust made a surplus of £4.6m in the period to the end of February – making it £1.9m ahead of plan.

Part of this is due to non-recurrent income and expenditure such as winter pressure money.

However, the trust has slightly underperformed against its CIP programme and had only returned £6.6m in savings by the end of February, against a target of £7.4m.
