£38m funding gap at Surrey hospital

13th October 2011

The Epsom and St Helier NHS Trust has revealed that it is facing a spending gap of £38m this year which is predicted to get worse.

The hospital, which has balanced its books for the past four years but is facing a future shortfall, says it is facing two major challenges with increased care costs and fewer people being treated in hospital. The National Audit Office (NAO) has named the trust as one of 20 not able to achieve foundation status.
