Annual Review 2016/17

Welcome to our short review of the past year, giving you an overview of what’s been happening in your local hospitals.

Overall this has been another positive year for Ashford and St. Peter’s, despite an increasingly challenging environment of rising demand for NHS services and continued financial pressure on the health and social care sector.

We continue to work hard to maintain high standards of care and were delighted to be nominated for the CHKS Quality of Care Award for the third year running. We were also proud to be shortlisted as ‘Provider of the Year’ in the 2016 HSJ Awards, which is a significant achievement and great reflection on our whole team.

 


 

Annual Report and Accounts 2016/17

Welcome to our Annual Report which covers the financial period from 1 April 2016 to 31 March 2017.

Looking back, this has been another positive year for Ashford and St Peter’s despite an increasingly challenging environment of rising demand for NHS services and continued financial pressure on the health and social care sector.

We continue to work hard to maintain high standards of care and are delighted to have been nominated for the CHKS Quality of Care Award for the third year running (which we won in 2015). We were also proud to be shortlisted as Provider of the Year for 2016 in the national HSJ Awards, which is a significant achievement and a great reflection on our whole team. CHKS has recently shortlisted us for a new award, Healthcare Efficiency, which underlines our success in combining top quality care with excellent financial management and efficiency. This was reflected in our year-end position where, unlike many other NHS organisations, we achieved a total surplus of £8.7m. Particularly significant was our underlying surplus of £1.1m (before sustainability and transformation funding and other adjustments), which puts us amongst the top Trusts in the country.

 


 

Operational Plan 2016/17

The Trust’s approach to activity planning is to ensure, in agreement with our commissioners, that we provide holistic capacity that is fully aligned with reasonable demand expectations.

During 2015/16, the Trust worked with North West Surrey CCG (NWS CCG) colleagues and NERA Economic Consulting to establish demand which is estimated to increase by 2.4% during FY2016/17. In a small number of critical areas additional growth has been factored into the plans to take account of RTT and diagnostic waiting times pressures. The Trust has been supported by its commissioners to ensure these targets are achieved.

Our activity plans for 2016/17 are therefore based on ensuring we have sufficient capacity to deal with demand.
