The Trust has ensured that there has been a focus on stabilisation and quality improvement, the Trust has established strong governance and leadership and overseen the commencement of significant clinical transformation.

 

The Director of Strategy reported that like the rest of the NHS, the Pennine Acute NHS Trust faces significant financial pressures and investment is required to improve and transform.

 

The Trust delivered a £2m deficit in 2016/17 on a turnover of £644m; this was better than planned. For 2017/18, the PAT has a £11.3m deficit plan.  The Director of Strategy reported that the main areas of pressure is, costs associated with activity over performance, continued use of clinical agency staff and delivery of efficiencies.

 

In respect of the Leadership arrangements, the new organisational arrangements have been in place since April 2017.  Care Organisations have been established that connect to their local health and care economy as well as the development of more robust clinical operating procedures to drive continuous improvement and resilience.

A North east sector Clinical Service Strategy has been developed, its primary aim is to describe how FGH, RI and ROH will deliver safe, high quality, clinically and financially sustainable services that meet the needs of local people.

 

The strategy will also support the future clinical and financial sustainability of NMGH and there will be separate governance arrangements in place for this.  The Strategy will focus on acute services at PAT sites, but this will be closely aligned to the development of improved services out-of-hospital.
