Hospital trust missed out on £59m bonus

BBC Radio Derby

The trust that runs the Royal Derby Hospital has lost out on tens of millions of pounds because of an accounting change.

The University Hospitals of Derby and Burton NHS Foundation Trust was expecting to receive a £59m pound end-of-year bonus from the NHS for hitting its financial targets.

However, a last-minute accounting change meant they suddenly missed the target.

The change relates to the sale of assets worth £101m.

The hospital is refusing to say what the sale was but filed documents at the start of April, suggesting a property transaction occurred between the hospital, its charity, and its commercial arm, involving five large pieces of land.

The trust is expected to reveal more details next month.

Forest rescue schools football association

BBC Radio Nottingham

Nottingham Forest have stepped in to rescue the cash-strapped Nottingham Schools Football Association.

Its future had been under threat amid a series of public sector cutbacks - with recent figures showing annual running costs of £40,000 - but the football club has pledged funding and resources to the association.

Former Reds defender Julian Bennett, who played for the association's City Boys before turning professional, said: "I wouldn't have had a career and potentially would have turned to other things and that's why it's so important to keep City Boys up and running."
