Freedom of Information,

Dear Mr Knox

As regards your call about the response to your FOI request, I have been asked to send the following message from the Director of Finance:

Due to the financial pressures being placed on the Trust the percentage of suppliers paid within the 30 day standard payment period is reducing. This is discussed in detail at the Trust’s Finance, Investment and Performance Committee and the Trust has the absolute commitment to improve this performance as we are well aware of the pressure’s it puts on the whole system.

Many thanks

Regards
Carole
