Good hospital management can save lives and increase much needed productivity at a time of budget constraints

By Rebecca Homkes

Abstract

Budget savings imposed through the government’s deficit reduction agenda have tended to focus on cutting out management costs and reducing layers of bureaucracy in public services. However, Rebecca Homkes presents evidence to show that in fact good management is key to increasing productivity and improving performance in hospitals, and that increasing the numbers of managers who can combine clinical and managerial skills should be a priority for the government
