Costing in the NHS

This report aims to highlight potential benefits and pitfalls of SLR and PLICS. It seeks to make clear the reasons underlying the effectiveness of such tools. To demonstrate these issues we focus in particular on the example of a central piece of hospital activity, examining cost calculation models of the operating theatre.

The National Health Service (NHS) faces a major challenge to transform itself into a patient-centred organisation, while at the same time saving over £20 billion between 2011 and 2014. Managing care more efficiently and effectively is crucial for tackling this challenge. As such, more sophisticated systems for analysing the financial aspects of hospital activity are essential.

I think the advantage of [PLICS] is that we drill down from the surface, down to the patient, and you can show the costs.
