'Basic management' failures at troubled trust

17th November 2011

Heatherwood and Wexham Park Hospitals Foundation Trust has been found to have had no “basic performance management systems” in place as it ran up a £8.3m deficit in six months.

The hospital, one of England’s most financially challenged foundation trusts, is “reforecasting” its finances to find new savings and produce a realistic prediction for the rest of 2011-12. Recently appointed interim chief executive Philippa Slinger said the trust will finish 2011-12 in deficit, and is expected to remain in the red during 2012-13.
