Do you know how we're measured on money?
[YAWN] No, please do tell me. I can't think of anything I'd rather do right now.
So the NHS sets something called a control total.
Its dead simple: its the money we bring into the trust, less what we spend.
NHSI Control Total
Sounds like complicated finance speak; what is it?
Income £250 million less Expenses £245.6 million equals Suprlus £4.4 million
Becayse the NHS wants us to hit our control total, they offer us incentives, So if we deliver our control total, we get to spend the surplus cash on capital.
So what is capital?
Each year we spend a lot of cash on facilities, buildings, equipment and IT. In 18/19 Alder Hey will be spending £20 million on Capital.
WOW! So let me get this straight, any surplus is cash to spend on capital?
The NHS have just introduced a bonus scheme for trusts who can do better than the control total.
So I see, making a surplus is good for Alder Hey as we spend more on kit such as a ventilator or an anaesthetic machine.
Alder Hey has identified some areas to over-achieve the control total. Alder Hey has therefore indicated they might be able to overachieve and access a bonus.
That sounds amazing. What are we going to spend it on?
We want to invest in new facilities including a new neo-natal unit.
And a brand new unit with 12 Tier 4 mental health beds on site.
If we dont meet our control total none of this will be possible!
Over 20 Million
