Milton Keynes Primary Care Trust

Volume 455: debated on Tuesday 16 January 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what the estimated financial position is of Milton Keynes primary care trust in the 2006-07 financial year; and what she estimates it will be in each of the next three financial years. (112806)

At the end of quarter two, 2006-07, Milton Keynes primary care trust (PCT) is forecasting a financial year end deficit of £5.8 million.

We are working with strategic health authorities to ensure that all national health service organisations in deficit improve their financial positions. Our performance and turnaround teams continue to work with the most challenged organisations to reduce forecast deficits.

All NHS organisations have a duty to achieve financial balance every year and if possible to create a surplus.
