Recommendation (s):

To approve the budgets for 2012/13 as set out in the attached paper.


A summary of the income and expenditure budgets and other key financial targets for the three PCT’s for 2012/13 is attached at appendix 1.1. Further information on the financial targets, budgets , QIPP savings plans and risk assessment for each PCT / CCG are set out in the Cluster Operating Plan. The budgets have been prepared in conjunction with and reviewed by the relevant Clinical Commissioning Groups. The PCT’s income comes through the department of Health and an initial income limit / RRL (Revenue Resource Limit) has been agreed for each PCT in respect of 2012/13 – see appendix 1.1. The Income / RRL will be subject to change during the year as further funds are made available or other adjustments are made. When this happens it may be necessary to revise the relevant budgets. The attached figures therefore represent the initial budgets for 2012/13 and will be used to monitor financial performance with effect from the 1 April 2012. They are based on the current confirmed income ( RRL) and Income and expenditure surplus targets .
