No. However, am I being too cynical not to expect much coverage of this news: "Majority of PCTs predict cash surplus for end of financial year". The General Practitioners Committee had warned that because NHS primary care trusts debts were likely to be transferred to the new GP consortia when they take on commissioning they would be starting with millions of pounds in debt and deficits; they expressed concern that these difficult financial conditions could mean that GP commissioning was doomed to fail. They need not fear: not a single one of the seventy one trusts that responded to the request for information "forecast a deficit at the end of the 2011/12 financial year"... "In fact 90% of PCTs predicted that they would be in surplus."
