  1. Could the recent In Year Productivity (HES-WAU) be reported at Clinical Service Level?

    The In Year Productivity data provides an overview of the change in organisation performance. A similar breakdown across Clinical Service Lines, and indeed all clinical compartments, would help identify positive and negative changes to allow review of effective local initiatives

  3. Capture where activity is delivered by or for another Trust

    As service model are further rationalised, different service models have been developed. We contract with local Trust's to deliver our activity in their Trust for a number of specialties and get recharged for this service. As per guidance this is classed as non pay and hence distorts our costs.
    Likewise we provide a £1m service to a neighbouring trust in order for them to deliver a specific specialty. Hence our pay costs are high but as confirmed NHSi, we are treating this as income which isn't factored in.

  6. Benchmarking regional specialist centres

    It would help if you could benchmark services and have the data based on those trusts who run specialist regional centres for example the effect of being a regional cancer centre and how this has imaging scans drug spend and pathology testing.

  9. Amend Staffing Compartment Calculation

    ESR data has been used to reflect the staffing by specialty however the way specialties have been defined is by "Area of Work". This is not a mandatory ESR field and often staff in a specialty come under differing areas of work eg administration.

    Internally we use cost centers. When we compare our departmental staff to your breakdown of our staff they are significantly different - eg T&O in the model hospital reports 70.8 FTE, we actually have just over 123 FTE. Therefore an inaccurate view of a specialty which we therefore cannot benchmark against other trusts.

  12. To share best practices for geriatric medicine as this is a major area in any trust

    This is an area with highest potential productivity opportunities and clinical staff need to look at best practices in other trusts to improve pathways and productivity. Sharing this as soon as possible would be helpful to engage doctors and staff in the current Model Hospital analysis we are doing.

  13. Include agency spend when calcualting staff type ost per WAU

    Currently the data on staff cost per WAU only includes employed staff this does not reflect the true cost which can include large amounts of agency spend. This means that areas that are fully established and use little agency look less efficient than under established areas with a large agency bill. This is perverse and is driving some very odd/dangerous ideas in our trust as to where savings can be made.

  14. Please define WTE consultant

    Does WTE pertain to 1 person that could be doing 10PAs or 14 or does it pertain to 10 PAs total work. To see if a service is efficient we need to compare output per PA not output per person listed on ESR

  17. Identify impact of outsourced or insourced work

    Please develop a way of carrying out data collection that enables us to exclude costs for providing activity to other providers as it skews our cost per WAU and makes benchmarking pointless. It would also be really helpful if costs and activity carried out by another organisation for us could be identified.We need to be able to identify our own services productivity and are overall value for money.

  19. User selection of sub-specialties underneath each specialty

    Allow users to select which sub-specialties should fall under over-arching specialty i.e. in paediatrics often different sub-specialties are managed by different Divisions and it is not clear how much of the opportunity lies in each sub-specialty

  20. Enable bespoke reports to be downloaded

    As a Model Hospital user I would like to be able to download data for a single metric across all clinical service lines, for example to be able to view Cost per WAU for all specialties at once rather than extracting from each specialty individually.
