Our budget for 2016/17 was £208.4m and the chart below shows how we spent that money.

We are using the principles of the NHS quality, innovation, productivity and prevention (QIPP) programme to help us meet the financial challenges facing the NHS. QIPP aims to maximise value for money across all services.

A detailed scheme for QIPP was developed by our senior management team in 2016/17 and has helped us identify areas where we can be more efficient, for example we have saved £0.6m through improvements to medication prescribing known as our GP prescribing incentive scheme.

We are planning a more ambitious QIPP programme for the coming year to continue with our financial recovery
