NHS Wales is heading for a deficit of £32m (€46m: $56m), it was reported last week.
The auditor general for Wales, Jeremy Colman, has announced that Welsh NHS trusts are predicting they will have overspent by £26m in the financial year 2005-6, with Health Commission Wales—the executive agency of the Welsh Assembly government that advises NHS Wales on commissioning services—predicting its own deficit of a further £10m. Mr Colman has warned that things could get worse before they get better.
