With the NHS under sustained financial pressure, the need to adopt new approaches to service delivery has never been more pressing. Improving the level of productivity through efficiency measures and releasing extra value from the existing budget is now a requirement rather than an aspiration.
With the issue of NHS productivity currently holding substantial public attention, particularly given the efficiency challenge set out in the Five Year Forward View, what do the latest statistics reveal about the level of productivity growth?
Evidence shows us that having engaged, healthy staff leads to increased productivity and an overall happier workforce. Staff costs account for 60p in every pound that hospitals spend. According to the Carter Review, improving staff productivity by five minutes every shift could save £280 million a year.
To achieve greater value from existing budgets all health services need a new agenda to deliver more high-value healthcare.
GIRFT is a national programme, led by frontline clinicians, created to help improve the quality of medical and clinical care within the NHS by identifying and reducing unwarranted variations in service and practice.
Research has claimed that approximately £74.5m worth of savings is being missed by NHS trusts due to the costs of patients missing appointments because of slow transport to hospitals.
Digital Patient Workflow is a significantly different way of managing operational processes within a hospital, tracking every patient through a care traffic ‘control centre’. Using this approach can positively impact on Emergency, Elective, Outpatients, Diagnostics and Theatre performance. It is in over 900 hospitals in the US and is being piloted in 5 hospitals in England with a second wave to come.
The Carter Review emphasised the need to restructure the NHS procurement and supply chain delivery model to rationalise the procurement landscape, reduce spend and consolidate purchasing power.

Construction of The Bridgewater Hall commenced on 22 March 1993, but the idea of a new concert hall for Manchester dates back to the reconstruction of the Free Trade Hall in the 1950s after wartime bomb damage. The Free Trade Hall was home to the city’s famous Hallé orchestra and also hosted rock and pop concerts. However, despite holding great public affection, the 1850s Free Trade Hall was ill-equipped to respond to the rising standards of service and acoustic excellence demanded by performers and audiences.
