London NHS provider to cut third of voluntary sector funding

NHS Enfield primary care trust has confirmed that in financial year 2012/13 the voluntary sector in the borough will receive £500,000 – a third less than the historic spend of £750,000 in previous years.

The cuts were first mooted by NHS North Central London, parent organisation to NHS Enfield, following its annual review of its provider contracts in October last year. Findings of this review were discussed at the NHS North Central London and Enfield Clinical Commissioning Group’s January board meetings and a statement confirming the cuts released on 9 February.
