Assessment of the use of resources

Use of resources summary

Requires improvement

Updated 6 March 2020

Our rating of use of resources. We rated it as requires improvement because:

  • There was significant room for improvement in the efficiency and effectiveness of the procurement function, which benchmarks poorly against others in several areas.
  • The NHS foundation trust should continue to develop e-job planning and e-rostering to improve efficiencies in medical staff deployment.
  • Staff retention remains below the national average, with scope for improvement.
  • The NHS foundation trust should improve the quality of its costing information, and review its data quality in its widest sense, in order to improve the accuracy and usefulness of benchmarking data and to better support management decision making.
  • While there were some examples given, there was scope for further use of benchmarking data to inform decision making.
