For this regional group of trusts, the accounts show that total private patient revenues increased in 2017-18, albeit not fully making up the reduction experienced the year before.

Total revenues are stated at £30.0m in 2017-18, up approximately 2.5% from £29.3m in 2016-17 (Figure 1, right). This level of income represents a small decline from 0.36 to 0.35% of these trusts’ total patient-related activity revenues. This remains below the combined national average outside of London of 0.5%.
