On 5th February Lord Carter published the final report of the 18 month review into productivity and efficiency within NHS hospitals.

Within the report there are 15 recommendations that could help save the NHS £5bn a year by 2020/1.  The recommendations include moving to e-rostering systems, adopting ‘model’ hospital standards, prioritising the role of procurement and working more closely with neighbouring hospitals.

The report acknowledged the vital role of people management, the daily contribution of NHS staff and the need to see workforce as more than a cost.

For more information go to the NHS confederation website or download the full report from the Department of Health website.
