Board members of NHS North Yorkshire and York - which funds doctors' surgeries across the county - have announced they are more than £19m in debt.
They say it is partly because funding which had previously been available now isn't.
They will meet next week to discuss ways to reduce the debt.
The news comes after the board was criticised for spending £3.2m on home health monitoring systems - or telehealth systems - which are hardly used.
