Description: To improve cost recovery from visitors and migrants (both EEA and non-EEA) in England to ensure that the NHS receives a fair contribution for the cost of the healthcare it provides.
DCA (RAG): Amber/Red
DCA text: With NHS Improvement, we have identified 20 NHS pilot sites with the most potential for further improvement in cost recovery. The pilots will be designed to drive improvements in patient identification, charging and cost and debt recovery processes and sharing best practice across the NHS. Increasingly, trusts will receive targeted intervention and intensive support from a new NHS Cost Recovery Support Team. The Government’s response to the consultation ‘Making a fair contribution’ will be published in due course. This will signal the introduction of Regulations with a focus on upfront charging and other measures, including charges for secondary care services provided outside hospitals and provided by non-NHS organisations on behalf of the NHS. The programme is actively working across government departments to explore options for reform to the Immigration Health Surcharge and decisions will be made in due course. NHS Improvement and NHS England are critical to the success over the transition year ahead: they will take forward components of the work programme closure
Start date: 2013-09-01
End date: 2018-03-31
Schedule text: In September 2016, the programme was extended to March 2018 to enable further opportunities to extend cost recovery. As a result of the EU exit decision, the programme will re-baseline its programme of work, associated milestones and risks, building on recommendations from assurance reviews conducted during 2016. The National Audit Office report (Autumn 2016) will also inform the future cost recovery programme of work.
Baseline: £8.78m
Forecast: £7.27m
Variance: -17.00%
Variance text: The programme profiled a total of £8.78m (capital and revenue) for 2016/17. At the end of Q2, the forecast-spend is at £7.27m due to delays in appointing a Cost Recovery Support Team and making progress with IT suppliers.
Whole Life Cost: £19.28m
WLCost text: The programme’s forecast whole life costs are £18.94m. The programme’s budget is agreed each year and will carefully consider its bid for 2017/18 in light of meeting the programme’s objectives ahead of closure in March 2018.
