  1. Do managers pay their way ? The impact of management input on hospital productivity in the NHS internal market.

    Article - En anglais

    Introduction 

    Levels of management staffing in the UK National Health Service (NHS) have received considerable political and media attention in the last four years or so.

    Both the previous and current governments committed themselves to reducing management expenditure in the heath service, and significant cuts appear to have been made in this area in the last year or so.

    Few systematic evaluations have been undertaken of the value of general management input, however, and policy changes appear to have been largely determined by popular opinion.

    This study attempts to quantify the effect of management input on hospital productivity for the first three years of the NHS internal market (1991/2-1993/4).

    Methods 

    An average cost function was used to model the effect of management inputs on hospital costs after adjustment for the levels of outputs produced, input costs, and internal and external exogenous constraints on hospital functioning.

    Two measures of management input were used : the proportion of total spending consumed by top level management, and the proportion consumed by all administrative activities.

    Cross-sectional and longitudinal models with contemporaneous and lagged management input effects were estimated.

    Results

    Total administrative inputs had a weaker, but still generally negative, association with productivity. (...)
