Cutting NHS red tape could save £10m

Cutting NHS red tape could save £10m

CUTTING unnecessary data collections across the NHS could save millions by releasing administrative and clerical resources to better support front line patient care, says the Department of Health.

Over 300 separate data collections commissioned by the Department and its arms length bodies were assessed as to how they impact on and improve patient and clinical care. A three-month consultation is now proposing that up to 25% of all current data returns should be discontinued. This would lead to a reduction in burden on the NHS of approximately £10m.

Public Health Minister, Anne Milton said: “Meaningful information is the lifeblood of the NHS. The data we collect must be of real value to help us improve patient outcomes, patient choice and clinical decisions. We know that some of the data that is being gathered is of limited use, taking up valuable staff time and resources.”

Chief Executive of the NHS Information Centre, Tim Straughan said: “We believe the result of review will free local NHS staff from unnecessary administrative burdens while at the same time supporting patient choice and better decision-making within the NHS.”

A second phase of work will be carried out to examine how remaining data returns can be rationalised. The aim is for data to be collected and processed efficiently. The consultation runs until 22 November 2011.
