Ready for Market - Skills mix

This guide reflects the experiences of successful physiotherapy service leads.

Increasing demand for heathcare within constrained financial resources means commissioners are considering alternatives to traditional service models and providers.

This includes integrated pathways of care, provided by multidisciplinary teams and increased use of voluntary and third-sector organisations.

To respond to the commissioning process, managers and commissioners need evidence that physiotherapy services are:

  • Providing services that achieve the right care by the right clinician at the right time and place
  • Delivering reliable, evidence-based, safe and consistent pathways of care
  • Providing the service level required with the most cost-effective staffing and skill mix

This guide provides information on reviewing skill mix, staffing levels and capacity to improve patient experience and outcomes, enhance staff support and deliver increased productivity and efficiency.
