Review shows how NHS hospitals can save money and improve care

In his final report, Lord Carter has advised the health secretary that implementing his recommendations will help end variations in quality of care and finances that cost the NHS billions.

His review found unwarranted variation in running costs, sickness absence, infection rates and prices paid for supplies and services.

As part of the review, a “model hospital” has been developed which will advise NHS trusts on the most efficient allocation of resources and allows hospitals to measure performance against other trusts.
