Calculating the cost of your service
Clearly articulating your service's value, impact and contribution to productivity is vital to gaining support from stakeholders.
Understanding the costs of your service and the different elements within it will show its value and efficiency. It will also help you gain stakeholder support for any proposed service improvement.
This information will help you and your finance support identify the viability of your service and any proposed development. It helps you highlight what cost savings you can make to your local healthcare provision.
