Trust statement regarding Monitor investigation

Issued: Tuesday 8th September 2015

Black Country Partnership Foundation Trust (BCPFT) welcomes Monitor’s investigation into our financial position, and we will work closely with them to provide appropriate information and support.

Karen Dowman, BCPFT Chief Executive, said: “Despite providing excellent care to our community, and having in place good standards of governance and operational performance, our financial sustainability continues to be our biggest challenge.”

“Like many areas of the National Health Service, BCPFT is not alone in facing this challenge. We have already started a programme of activity to identify cost-savings and improve our financial sustainability, and to put in place safeguarding checks to ensure efficiencies do not compromise care.”

“Despite the current financial position, we continue to remain focused on providing an excellent standard of care to the community we support.”
