The Chief Executive of the NHS in Wales has told Assembly Members that health chiefs now understand there will be no further budget bailouts in the future. David Sissling was being questioned by members of the Public Accounts Committee over concerns about the health service's finances.
Mr Sissling told the AMs that now that health boards are being allowed to draw up three year budgets, they are developing 'strong plans' which show 'rigour and discipline' when it comes to financial targets.
Boards have been criticised by auditors for a culture which assumes there will be extra money if they fail to meet those financial targets. Mr Sissling said that boards realise that when the plans are 'signed off, they are signed off.'
