FINANCE: All primary care trusts in the NHS Yorkshire and the Humber region except one fell short of their planned surplus at the end of 2010-11.

Leeds PCT finished the year ahead of plan with a £20.1m surplus. Wakefield District, Rotherham, North East Lincolnshire, Doncaster, Barnsley, Bradford and Airedale, Hull and North Lincolnshire PCTs fell short of their planned surpluses, but by less than £1m.

Calderdale fell short of its plan by £2.6m, East Riding of Yorkshire £2m and Kirklees by £2m, but these shortfalls were agreed earlier by the strategic health authority.

North Yorkshire and York £17.5m, and Sheffield PCT by £3.5m. The SHA’s finance report says they were “unable to deliver their originally agreed plans due to levels of financial risk experienced in year”.

None of the PCTs recorded a deficit, however, and their shortfall against plans was made up by the SHA recording a £121m surplus, £75m more than planned.
