Strategic Finance Group Update


Sam Evans gave a verbal update, advising that the challenge remained across the NHS system, with elements off track and new pressures from strikes. She advised that a turnaround director had been appointed at GM level and holds had been put on spends. This moratorium was also in place at the Council, which was currently overspent without sufficient reserves to cover.


It was noted that a systemwide approach was needed, as cuts in one area would affect another and the entire system was experiencing the same increase in demand with reduced capacity to meet it.
