As part of the Government's commitment to greater transparency, there is a requirement to publish online central government expenditure over £25,000, this also applies to NHS bodies.
Expenditure is all individual invoices, grant payments, expense payments or other such transactions that are over £25,000. Credit notes over £25,000 are also included. Where amounts shown are less than £25,000 these will relate to invoices or credit notes that contain multiple lines but where the total invoice value exceeds £25,000.
In response to the Prime Minister's desire to improve transparency around how the public sector spends its money, and following guidance issued by HM Treasury in September 2010, Worcestershire Health & Care NHS Trust will publish monthly reports of expenditure over £25,000. For additional information about the publication scheme, see the HM Treasury guidance.
