Efficiency & Carter Savings Q1 and Q2 18/19

The request was refused by NHS Improvement.

Dear NHS Improvement,

This is a request based on the data NHS Improvement publishes within the quarterly performance report. Specifically the information on efficiency savings (CIP) and the specific savings linked to Lord Carters productivity themes.

1. For Q1 and Q2 18/19, can NHS Improvement provide a list of target efficiency savings (£) by trust, followed by the actual efficiency savings achieved (£)? Alternatively, if the monetary value for targets/actuals are not available, can NHS Improvement provide a % of savings achieved against targets in each quarter (Q1 and Q2 18/19) by trust?

2. Following on from the above, does NHS Improvement hold any information specific to back-office functions (admin costs) efficiency savings made by trusts for Q1 and Q2 18/19. If this detail is not reported currently, are there plans to set targets for trusts based on the announcement of trusts having to achieve £400m of savings from admin costs in the next five years in the NHS long-term plan

3. NHS Improvement has reported trust savings linked to Lord Carter productivity themes in Q1 18/19 at £296m and Q2 18/19 at £713m. Can NHS Improvement provide these savings achieved (£) broken down by trust for each quarter?

I look forward to your reply,

Yours faithfully,

A Thompson
