£90m fall in earnings for trusts

28th October 2010

The Department of Health’s policy to restrict funding for emergency admissions has seen hospital trusts lose out on income worth about £90m during the three months to June.

And the 12 trusts that saw a rise in emergency admissions of more than 20% since the introduction of the new emergency tariff regime in April lost an average of £1.5m during the quarter, compared with the average loss of just around £750,000 for all trusts. Figures show that 119 trusts out of 147 analysed saw a rise in emergency demand during the first quarter of 2010-11.
