Detail

David Flory’s report for the third quarter of 2010/11 provides a summary of the NHS financial position and performance against the national priorities set out in the Revision to the Operating Framework for the NHS in England 2010/11.

Severe weather conditions and influenza bought challenges in this quarter but the service coped well to maintain levels of performance, although there are still some areas which could benefit from improvement.

This is a crucial and unique time for the NHS and it is critical that organisations keep their focus on ensuring patients get timely, high quality care.
