Managing the healthcare business


In the NHS today there is increasing demand and greater patient and public expectations, but this usually comes at a higher financial cost. However, the public sector cannot continue to spend more money than it has available without significant system-wide consequences. When having to ‘do more’ with no additional resources, managing the money that is available efficiently and effectively is vital in demonstrating that public money has been used wisely and well. All public sector organisations have a duty to plan how their resources will be used to meet their objectives and an accountability to report to the Government and the public.
This module will help you to understand how planning, reporting and governance arrangements in the NHS help organisations to: establish an agreed way forward; set aims and objectives, how these will be achieved and by when; develop a framework for day-to-day decisions; and be accountable for their performance.
