Huge rise in management costs

23rd September 2010

Suffolk Mental Health Partnership NHS Trust (SMHPT) has revealed a significant rise in yearly management costs.

According to the trust’s latest annual report, management costs rose by nearly £650,000 – from £4,264,000 in 2008/09 to £4,903,000 in 2009/10. Over two years, it has risen by just over £1m. Also in the eastern region, the East of England Strategic Health Authority’s management costs rose by £1.6m and Ipswich Hospital’s increase was £700,000. SMHPT has defended the rise saying it was down to extra fees involved in the construction of the new mental health hospital in Ipswich.
