  • This report looks at different productivity schemes which could be adopted by hospitals to ensure that public expenditure is held in check. Current thinking about training emphasises the fact that little benefit will be gained unless the situation which is desired to change has first been thoroughly analysed. The first object of this study was to examine the productivity schemes which are being tried out in the hospital service, and also those which are being adopted, in order to discover what obstacles exist which might yield to different forms of training. The chapters in this publication outline the characteristics of the three main types of schemes which seem applicable to hospitals: variable incentive bonus schemes; measured day work schemes; productivity agreements.
