Abstract

This report presents the results of a literature review that identifies examples of successful initiatives that have sought to improve value for money in the NHS within the UK and internationally. The report was produced as a background report for a BMA cross branch of practice roundtable on the issue, to help spread good practice and support doctors working in an increasingly underfunded NHS.

It draws out three areas, which were identified as areas where existing NHS funds may be used more effectively: preventative measures through investment in public health; improvements to services through changes in clinical and systems and management practices.  The examples provided in the report are illustrative, not exhaustive.
