What we spend and how we spend it
The majority of our income is generated through various Service Level Agreements with each of the primary care trusts within the South Central Strategic Health Authority catchment area. These agreements for service are reviewed and renegotiated on an annual basis. A list of the Primary Care Trusts within this area is available, please click here for further information.
The Patient Transport Service is commissioned by primary care trusts and Hospitals on a contract basis.
Additional income is generated from providing support at public events, commercial training and other activities.
Capital income is largely sourced from internal resources.
Income is allocated to services within the Trust and capital expenditure planned by the setting of the budget each year. Every March, the Trust Board receives a report from the Director of Finance proposing budgets for the forthcoming financial year, which starts on 1 April.
The Community First Responders schemes are the main source of income for the Trust's charitable funds. Additional funding is also achieved via legacies.
