Maintaining Capacity & Demand Balance

In a recent report NHS IMAS & McKinsey Hospitals Institute have identified the balancing of capacity and demand as critical to delivering consistent 18-week RTT performance.

It highlights 4 key tasks as:

-          Balancing underlying supply & demand

-          Creating flexibly supply options

-          Defining the shape and size of waiting lists & monitoring both

-          Analysing & managing capacity & demand down to sub-specialty level

The report states that “the most efficient way of understanding the dynamic between demand and capacity and to calculate maximum list sizes, is to use a modelling tool”
