Description:
Once again in 1984, as in 1983, the health services were dominated by the financial constraints imposed by the Government as a means of reducing health costs. The allocation for 1984 was initially £3.5m. short. In the course of the year additional costs totalling approximately £0.8m. arose due to the loss of revenue from patients treated for road traffic accidents, removal of food subsidies and other reasons. The Board after a series of meetings agreed on targets for reduction in both pay and non- pay costs . In the event the tar gets on non- pay were achieved and exceeded , with a lot of co- operation and goodwill all round. However we failed to meet the targets for reductions in pay costs. Nevertheless we have finished the year with a debit balance of £1.095m. having trimmed expenditure by almost £3.2m. Were it not for the extra items which arose during 1984 through no fault of the Board and cost almost £1.8m. the final outcome would have been closer to the amount allocated , Unfortunately the balance of about £1.1m . must be carried forward to be met in 1985 and this problem will have to be resolved when the Board comes to deal with the Estimates for 1985.
