NHS in York faces multi-million pound deficit as financial crisis continues

THE NHS body which runs health services for York is expected to have reached the end of the financial year with a deficit of £28.1 million.

Vale of York Clinical Commissioning Group is classed as being in special measures because of ongoing troubles with its finances and is being overseen by NHS England.

A recent report suggests the end of year deficit will be offset by a financial reserve, improving the situation by £4.3m to £23.8m.

However, further cuts are likely to see the NHS in York end 2017/18 with a deficit of £44.1m and £53.9m by 2018/19.
