Facing the challenge of reducing workforce
costs? You are not alone. The NHS is now in the third year of
the £20 billion productivity challenge and the King’s Fund’s
Finance Directors’ panel reports an average target of 5.1%
Identifying opportunities for cost improvement
is only part of the challenge. Implementing strategies successfully
can put a real strain on already overstretched resources and too
often, legal risks are not identified early, potentially
jeopardising the execution and impacting on your savings
Ernst & Young and Weightmans have come
together to offer support and share our experience of working with
Trusts who have embarked on the journey from identification of
productivity improvement opportunities through to implementation
and release of costs.
You’ll have the opportunity to discuss the
practical implications of CIP and you’ll also be able to share your
experiences with other senior HR, finance and executive colleagues
– focusing on what’s worked for you, the challenges you face and
positive next steps.
Ernst & Young have significant experience
of identifying and delivering productivity improvements within both
acute and community care Trusts. They’ve helped organisations save
between 1% and 10% by focusing on specific staff groups, for
example, medical and nursing, by conducting integrated service
reviews of individual and specific areas and by providing robust
programme management office support.
