Performance of the foundation trust sector: year ended 31 March 2015

Monitor, May 2015

This report summarises the performance of the NHS foundation trust sector for the final quarter of the year ending 31 March 2015. It found that foundation trusts treated 10.7 million emergency inpatients between April 2014 and March 2015, a 574,000 increase on the previous year. However, this increase in demand for care, combined with an over-reliance on expensive agency staff and the need to make cost savings, is putting trusts under sustained and exceptional pressure. The sector ended 2014/15 in deficit (-£349 million) for the first time, a sign of the increased pressures upon services.
