PERFORMANCE: Weston Area Healthcare is over performing against PCT contracts by more than £1.2m.

North Somerset over performance is now £1,024k year to date and it is thought to be unlikely that any over performance will be paid. Somerset PCT year to date over performance is £254k.The trust has also overspent on pay by £1,663k year to-date and is behind on the savings plan by £611k. A significant amount of the savings shortfall is due to a one month delay in implementation of a ward reconfiguration scheme and slippage on a optimising elective and urgent care pathway scheme.
