<p>Fewer trusts are in deficit, the size of those deficits are down (compared to 2015-16). But problems in a minority of trusts do still exist, and tackling that challenge is key to the success of the National Health Service’s plan.</p><p> </p><p>The underlying deficit for NHS trusts is exclusively an NHS Improvement-derived measure as set out in their NHS annual planning guidance. We agree that calculating a baseline position is a useful technique for organisations to build a credible plan for the year. As stated in the audited Departmental 2017/18 Annual Accounts, NHS providers reported an aggregate deficit of just under £1 billion in 2017-18, however this overall deficit, the size of individual deficits and the number of trusts reporting a deficit have all significantly improved since 2015-16 and the NHS financial reset.</p>
