ACB Response to NHS Improvement Letter

11/07/2016 10:34:32

NHSI has written to all Trusts outlining the financial position and highlighting three areas where action is required:
  • Elimination of pay cost growth
  • Back office and pathology consolidation
  • Unsustainable service consolidation.
The ACB has written a response detailing that pathology is not a back office function and that consolidation does not always lead to financial savings.
