Hospital finances and productivity: in a critical condition?

NHS Evidence - health management - Mon, 20/04/2015 - 12:02

Health Foundation - 
This report examines the financial performance of NHS providers, focusing on hospitals. It finds that financial performance of NHS providers in England has deteriorated sharply since 2013 and that despite an expected under-spend from commissioners of £197 million, the NHS is projected to overspend by £626 million by the end of 2014/15. It also found that staff costs are the biggest driver of rising operating costs; with spending on temporary staff rising by £1 billion in 2013/14. The analysis finds that NHS hospitals have only improved efficiency at an average rate of 0.4% a year over this parliament, below previous estimates and also the rate of 2-3% set out in the NHS five year forward view.
