HEY Hospitals say they’re having to deal with a predicted year end deficit of £18m.

Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust are now urgently improving levels of productivity and efficiency across the organisation, from back office work through to clinical operations.

But say they’ll remain committed to providing the best possible care to patients during the changes.

Lee Bond, Chief Financial Officer at Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust says:

“In light of recent unprecedented financial pressure, along with other Trusts nationally we are facing difficult times ahead.

“We are currently forecasting a year end deficit of approximately £18m which means that going forward we need to work very differently as an organisation. We urgently need to improve levels of productivity and efficiency right across the organisation, ranging from our back office, administrative and estates functions through to our front line clinical operations. This will include the way we use our operating theatres, how we provide outpatient clinics and how we look to reduce the length of stay for patients in our hospitals.

“Financial recovery on this scale will not be overnight and is likely to take a number of years as we make the changes required to our operations. During this time we remain committed to providing the best possible care to the people of Hull and East Yorkshire, whilst acknowledging that due to national spending constraints we will have to be more efficient in order to remain sustainable for the future.”
