by Nigel Beasley, ENT Consultant, Deputy Medical Director, Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust, Right Care Clinical Lead: Better Value Clinical Practice

Extract

“The project, sponsored by the NHS Commissioning Board, has three key objectives:
1. To identify and reduce unexplained variation in rates of elective surgical interventions.
2. To reduce locality-based ‘postcode lottery’ variation in the provision of surgical services.
3. To provide ethical, sustainable and consistent evidence-based advice on the commissioning of elective surgical services.”
