The Worcestershire Health and Care NHS Trust saved thousands of pounds on its gas bills this year after its supplier billed the energy consumption incorrectly.

The Trust was apparently charged double for the gas for one of its buildings, according to the energy management bureau from TEAM which spotted the mistake. It says the Trust saved £82,104 on its bill for the Isaac Maddox House, which sits next to the Worcester & Birmingham Canal.

The news comes in the wake of a host of bad publicity for British energy suppliers, which have consistently been bashed for their lack of transparency. UK utilities were recently rated “lowest scoring” in a survey of customer satisfaction by NCIS Index.
