FINANCE: The south west London trust is £2.4m behind the total agreed with NHS London.

A finance report said: “This position reflects the ongoing impact of loss of income arising from the adverse arbitration result and other negotiated settlements.

It added: “The trust also experienced significant reduced throughput in elective and outpatient activity due to consultant unavailability.”

The trust has now reduced its projected year-end surplus to £5m.

The acute trust absorbed NHS Wandsworth’s provider arm on October 1.
