THE number of midwives and health visitors in the Huddersfield area could increase, according to a new financial plan.

In the 2012/2013 financial plan delivered at the Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust board meeting, Director of Finance Keith Griffith outlined key areas for expenditure in the upcoming financial year.

These included:

Midwifery staffing ratios

Health Visitor numbers

A&E senior medical staffing

Stroke service

Start of service delivery from the Trust’s new facility at Broad Street replacing the Laura Mitchell Health Centre.

The Trust aims to achieve a £3m surplus this year, which will help stand it in good stead against financial risk in the upcoming years.

Mr Griffith said: “2012/13 is the first year of three years of economic restraint and therefore the Trust needs to plan for the long term.

“We need to deliver performance and financial priorities while improving patient experience.”
