  2.

  3. Business Planning ModelBowen & Forte (1997)

  4. What is the 18 week policy? • 18 week maximum wait from referral to procedure • ‘6-6-6’: could be six week maximum wait for each of outpatients, diagnostics and inpatient services • “Redesign the whole patient pathway” • “Abolish waiting lists”

  5. Modelling Waiting Times - 1

  6. Modelling Waiting Times - 2

  7. Modelling Waiting Times - 3

  8. Modelling Waiting Times - 4

  9. Objectives of the exercise • Activity projections and assessment of capability to meet: • 18 week maximum wait from referral to procedure • admission avoidance targets • patient choice • Identify independent sector role • Cover PCT and Trust interests: ‘all levels’

  10. Key Findings • Resource implications of achieving 18-week maximum wait may not be massive, but they need to be kept in balance • Demand for MRI and CT is unclear, and may not be related to this pathway • Key role for commissioners to set activity plans and negotiate delivery (even though it’s all in Payment by Results territory)
