Description:
The services outlined in this operational plan are based on those agreed in the National Service Plan 2016 and the Acute Division Operational Plan. Substantial cost control and cost reduction by the UL Hospital Group will be required with a focus on controlling the total pay and non-pay costs as well as maximising income. The UL Hospital Group, with support from the Acute Division, will take a number of measures to control costs, reduce waste and improve efficiency while aiming to minimise any impact on services. With regard to inpatient activity it is recognised that the imperative is to continue to shift to day case activity in terms of enabling optimum access at the most efficient cost. The planned work undertaken by the system will give priority to urgent and complex cases. In terms of activity the group will also seek to optimise existing capacity through reducing length of stay and shifting care to appropriate settings including primary care.
