The group which makes decisions on most county NHS spending has cut its projected deficit for this financial year to £1 million.

Oxfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group (OCCG) – set to spend £635.7m this year – had warned of a £7.5m overspend in the 12 months from April 1.

Yet this has been cut. The news comes after the OCCG reduced its overspend for the 12 months up to March 31 this year.
