University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay: Sustainability – Clinically Led, Efficiency Driven

The trust developed a programme of work with a focus on achieving savings in a clinically led, joined up, inclusive way that is being embedded into the DNA of the organisation to balance and complement patient experience and quality delivery.

This is allowing it to move towards sustainability in an aligned, driven and transparent way. The programme has demonstrated a step change in cost improvement. For  2017 savings are forecast to be greater than £12m, compared to £8-10m previously.

The judges were impressed with the outstanding turnaround in a phenomenal time period, through a fundamental change in culture and leadership.
