Want a index of staff costs per hr of service delivery
GP population 500,000 but staff costs driven by delivering 24/7 services on 3 sites- ie 72 hrs Biochemistry per 24hr. This causes a bias in my apparent staffing costs. It also mens that it is difficult to compare with other Trusts.
Suggest model: onsite delivery = 24/24. and if old fashioned on-call periods = average of hours claimed.
