Lord Carter Report on Productivity in NHS Hospitals
Lord Carter's review of efficiency in hospitals shows how large savings can be made by the NHS.
Lord Carter of Coles’ final report sets out how non-specialist acute trusts can reduce unwarranted variation in productivity and efficiency across every area in the hospital to save the NHS £5 billion each year by 2020 to 2021.
The final report builds on the findings of the interim report and sets out further findings of variation across 32 non-specialist acute trusts.
Lord Carter has been appointed as a non-executive director at NHS Improvement and will continue to input into the implementation of his recommendations.
