  • Improving hospital efficiencyAuthors: Jeremy Hurst and Sally WilliamsSelected figuresJanuary 2012 © Nuffield Trust
  • Why does efficiency matter?• The NHS needs to make unprecedented savings up to 2015 and beyond.• As the Government tries to shift more care into the community, the pressure facing hospitals will be even greater.• Improvements in hospital efficiency in England during previous times of financial constraint have come from treating more patients, as well as from saving money. © Nuffield Trust
  • Key findings• International comparisons suggest the UK still has some way to go to catch up with the best health systems• There is scope for the considerable variation in performance across English hospitals to be reduced• Commissioners should focus on how they can incentivise local hospitals into adopting good practice.• New technology holds the greatest potential for increasing productivity• Merging hospitals will not automatically lead to efficiency savings• The report reaffirms the crucial role that good management plays in achieving high productivity. © Nuffield Trust
