Description:
This examination set out to review the management of energy by health boards and voluntary hospitals. Health boards and publicly-funded hospitals spent £21.9m on fuels and other energy sources in 1993 (the latest year for which figures are available). (paragraph 1.6) Boards have been generally successful in reducing the cost of energy in recent years. Energy costs peaked in 1985 but decreased until 1989 when they began to rise again. However, in aggregate, they have still not surpassed the 1985 levels. (paragraph 1.7) Energy management practices of the boards and a sample of hospitals and homes were examined to gauge the success of the measures they have taken to minimise the price of fuels or to substitute cheaper inputs and to control consumption by eliminating energy waste and improving the efficiency of energy utilisation.
