More for less – Are productivity and efficiency improving in the NHS? – UK Audit Commission
Released  12 November 2009

“This analytical briefing looks at how NHS money has been spent, whether primary care trusts have been successful in keeping more patients out of hospital, and whether hospitals have become more efficient. It highlights that the NHS is treating more patients at lower cost and trusts are starting to meet the challenges of the future. It suggests NHS trusts are increasing productivity and reducing unit costs. But overall, there is no sign yet that primary care trusts have been successful in moving care from hospitals closer to patients’ homes.

The briefing also includes a look at the first quarter of 2009/10.”
