FINANCE: South London and Maudsley Foundation Trust was nearly £1m behind on its £3.7m savings plan at month three, a finance report revealed.

The biggest shortfalls were in the psychosis and behavioural and development savings plans, with both savings streams more than £200,000 off-plan.

The trust’s total plan for this year is £21.5m. Last year it achieved 71 per cent of its savings plan.
