Wales £87.5m shortfall in NHS budget

11th May 2010

Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan could face a deficit of £87.5 million, according to the Cardiff and Vale University Health Board.

Most of the deficit is in relation to "unavoidable commitments" such as staff pay and inflation. The university health board stated: "The UHB is undertaking further work to prioritise service requirements to take full account of the required efficiency improvements...the UHB will need to ensure that its saving plan and cost containment measures deliver £74.6m to offset/manage unavoidable expenditure requirements."
