It just means they haven't made a decision yet. There are all sorts of things that can hold up a decision on a recruitment, and delays are quite common, especially in a large, bureaucratic organisation like the NHS.

If you have been given a very clear, decision date, and no decision comes through on that date, it can also mean that they've made an offer to someone else and are waiting for them to decide, but they are holding you in case the first candidate rejects the offer, so you've still got a chance. in that case, you can wait a week or so and still may get good news.
