Unexpected losses being incurred by hospitals in West Yorkshire have become an issue of concern. Even the authorities concerned have claimed that it seems such losses were difficult to control. In all, the hospitals suffered losses amounting to £2.2m. And more worrisome is the fact that the whooping £2.2m loss was incurred just in a year.
Of this amount, about £500,000 was wasted at the time when expensive surgical equipments stopped working. An amount of around £275,000 was given in the form of payouts to workers who earlier used to work at the Leeds and Mid Yorkshire hospital trusts.
Hospitals said losses could also be attributed to special payments totaling £1.2m that they had to make between April 2010 and March 2011.
"Like every major public and private organization, however, we are occasionally subject to unexpected losses or unplanned special payments on a one-off basis", said a spokesperson working for Leeds Teaching Hospitals. She affirmed that they have been making all efforts to minimize such losses.
Leeds is not the only such hospital as there are several others, including Mid Yorkshire NHS Hospitals Trust, that have shown concern over unexpected losses.
