Efficiency and productivity A long-term, continuous focus on efficiency and productivity is essential to ensure health care quality


The sustainability of the NHS and social care system is likely to become an even bigger issue in coming years, given funding constraints, increasing demand, workforce shortages and variation in the quality and productivity of care.

Our work on efficiency and productivity aims to help NHS and social care services to become more sustainable. We look at whether health care resources are being used to get the best value for money, and identify ways that productivity of services and workforce can be improved.
