Deficits in the NHS 2016

Unaudited figures indicate that NHS commissioners and providers in aggregate ended 2015/16 in deficit for the second year running.

This briefing from the King’s Fund draws on data from quarterly monitoring reports, secondary research and interviews with health care leaders to consider commissioner and provider finances in the round and to provide an overview of the factors that have led to the NHS going into deficit. It goes on to outline some of the strategies being employed to restore financial balance, before considering the implications of these strategies for the NHS this year and in the longer term.
