Clear leader shows how it can be done

Our monthly analysis of private patient revenue growth moves to the East Midlands. Philip Housden reports

Figures from the published annual accounts for this group of trusts shows that total private patient revenues remained flat in 2017-18 as they did in the previous year.  

The area covered are the East Midlands counties of Northamp­ton­shire, Leicestershire, Notting­hamshire, Derbyshire and Lincolnshire. There were ten trusts to analyse, but Derby and Burton Hospitals merged in July 2018.

Total revenues remained at £11.8m in 2017-18. This now represents 0.30% of these trusts’ total revenues, essentially a flat figure for the last few years. This is below the combined national average outside of London of 0.5%.
