To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, how many meetings have taken place between NHS Improvement and NHS trusts to agree plans to improve their financial position since 2010; which providers have had such meetings with NHS Improvement; and when each such meeting took place.

As well as regular formal meetings with trusts, NHS Improvement has multiple day-to-day interactions with them which include discussions around financial performance.

The frequency of these meetings will depend on the nature and extent of the challenges the trusts face. For example where a trust is not meeting its control total, or is at risk of not meeting it, NHS Improvement will have regular and frequent contact to ensure that the trust is doing everything it can to deliver improvements.
