Within the NHS Long Term Plan, NHS England set out a goal of achieving at least 1.1% increases in productivity over each of the next five years with a particular focus on improving efficiencies in staffing, estates, equipment, etc. But there’s a limit to what you can do with those resources, and that’s where increased productivity can have its benefits.
The recent announcement of NHS debt being wiped will provide the perfect window of opportunity to assess current procedures and invest in improving the productivity and efficiency of both patient-facing and back-office protocol within a secondary care setting.
NHS Long-Term Plan, key areas of focus include: • A drive to reduce administrative costs • Reducing absence due to stress and mental health • Improving procurement • Reducing the number of clinically ineffective treatments • Capping spending on agency staff
We are all still working in uncertain times and have had to access our procedures, join us as we open the debate on NHS Productivity and share some national best practice and policy updates in a relaxed and highly interactive manner.
