|Description: ||The non-capital revenue allocation for the Board's hospitals was
again reduced in 1989. The allocation for the Board's hospitals was
£1.2 m.less than that required to maintain services at 1988 levels.
The continuing cumulative reductions of previous years made 1989
another very difficult year for all of the Board's hospitals.
The r eduction in the hospitals allocation was achieved by reducing
pay costs by £0.600 m. and non-pay costs by £0.600 m.
Total direct expenditure in the Board's hospitals in 1989 was £36.62m
(interim financial report - 1989) compared with £35.96 m.for total
direct expenditure in 1988. This represented ah increase of 1.83%.
The inflation rate for 1989 was 4.0% and pay costs in the Health
Services increased · by an average of 4%. Expenditure on non-pay continued to be scrutinised and reviewed
during the year and further efficiency measures were introduced in
the areas of medicines, medical supplies, provisions, catering,
laundry, energy management and telephone costs. During 1989 a further £0.100 m. was invested in improving the energy
management systems in the Board's hospitals|
