Description: The improvement of recovery for healthcare costs realised by the NHS in the treatment of immigrants and visitors to the UK. This is from both EEA and non-EEA members states.
DCA (RAG): Amber
DCA text: The programme delivery status is rated as amber. This is because, while all projects are progressing well with some having being completed and now being transitioned to business as usual, overall programme risk is rated as amber/red because the programme is reliant on a shift in the culture across NHS organisations towards one which is focussed on identifying and charging chargeable patients, if it is to reach its trajectory goals. As at Q2 2015/15, the programme has one high and two medium impact issues, which could have impacts on the ability of the programme to deliver. These are: that the impact assessment sent to the Senior Review Committee reflected a lower than expected net benefit of extending charging (high); getting cross-Government clearance of the extending charging consultation (medium); and concerns around future leadership from ALBs (medium). It is not anticipated that these issues would lead to a cost or schedule overrun. A number of recommendations were made at the last review to which the Programme has responded positively and to IPAs satisfaction.
Start date: 2013-09-01
End date: 2017-03-31
Schedule text: Initially the programme was due to close in March 2016. The Programme Board, following advice from the IPA, extended the programme in August, so that it would close in March 2017, with the current SRO agreeing to extend his term. This was to enable the team to continue to work with its Arm's Length Bodies and NHS colleagues to implement the changes brought about by the programme, and also to ensure a stable and safe transition of the programme when it closes.
Baseline: £4.00m
Forecast: £3.00m
Variance: -25.00%
Variance text: There were no costs, other than staffing costs, prior to 14/15. Due to late publication of the implementation plan, the budget for 14/15 was re-forecast, from £6.5million to £1.5million. Actual spend was £1million, as less than expected was spent on the CRST and the IT changes, with £0.5m returned to the central pot. The budget for 15/16 has been reforecast from £4m to £3m.
Whole Life Cost: £10.50m
WLCost text: It has been agreed that the programme will continue for a further year - until the end of financial year 16/17.
