Dear Foiteam (NORTH WEST ANGLIA NHS FOUNDATION TRUST),

In response to your question

Can we ask for clarification on the above question? In which forum did
the CEO promise to make £9m profit per year?

This is a direct quote from your business plan.
The estimated savings under this option are £9m associated with reductions in Board costs and corporate pay and total elimination of the agency spend in back office areas.

I shall restructure my question

Taking the above quote into consideration, have the Trust managed to save 9 million as estimated in your merger business plan as a reoccurring saving and if not why was this within your business plan to the public as part of your agreed merger?

Yours sincerely,

B Hill
