Ten more trusts named in Lord Carter’s review

The ten additional trusts to take part in Lord Carter’s review into hospital efficiency and savings have been revealed by the Department of Health.

Lord Carter, chair of the NHS Procurement Development Delivery Board, has already been working alongside his team with the 22 cohort hospitals originally selected for analyses into their efficiency and productivity data.

The review will help determine how £5bn a year of savings could be made by 2019-20 by improving workflow, containing workforce costs, and improved hospital pharmacy and medicines optimisation.

The 10 new cohort trusts to take part in the review are:

  • East Lancashire Hospitals Trust
  • Frimley Health Foundation Trust
  • Hull and East Yorkshire NHS Trust
  • North Middlesex University Hospital Trust
  • Norfolk and Norwich Foundation Trust
  • Royal Devon and Exeter Foundation Trust
  • South Tyneside Foundation Trust
  • The Royal Wolverhampton Trust
  • University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire Trust
  • University Hospitals of Leicester Trust

The Department has also confirmed that Andrew O’Connor, head of procurement at Countess of Chester Hospital Trust, has been advising the efficiency review team.

Jeremy Marlow, former head of strategy at the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, has also been appointed as the team’s director of productivity.

NHE interviewed Lord Carter in our July/August edition, in which he traced a series of recommendations necessary to defining a “right model” of care in the NHS.

He reiterated that a ‘Model NHS Hospital’, coupled with the Adjusted Treatment Index (ATI) developed with the 22 original trusts in the review, can be “brought to life” to show how good clinical practice, workforce management and careful spending lead to measurable efficiency improvements while improving quality.

The 10 new trusts will join the procurement efficiency team currently comprising the following 22 hospitals:

  • Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust
  • Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust
  • Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS FT
  • University College London Hospitals NHS FT
  • Cambridge University Hospitals NHS FT
  • Royal Free London NHS FT
  • Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust
  • Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust
  • Northumbria Healthcare NHS FT
  • Plymouth Hospitals NHS Trust
  • East Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust
  • Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust
  • Bolton NHS Foundation Trust
  • Mid Essex Hospital Services NHS Trust
  • University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS FT
  • Ipswich Hospital NHS Trust
  • Salisbury NHS FT
  • North Cumbria University Hospitals NHS Trust
  • Hinchingbrooke Healthcare NHS Trust
  • University Hospitals Birmingham NHS FT
  • Salford Royal NHS FT
  • Countess of Chester Hospital NHS FT

Always love NHS programmes which expand without any evidence of success.
