HEALTH ECONOMICS PROTOCOL PUBLISHED

The protocol for HiSLAC’s health economics workstream has been published in BMJ Open.

‘Protocol for the Health Economic Evaluation of Increasing the Weekend Specialist to Patient Ratio in Hospitals in England’ sets out the latest component of the five-year study.

The HiSLAC (High-Intensity Specialist Led Acute Care) study is an independent, nation-wide project which sets out to understand the impact on patient care of increasing specialist cover at weekends.

Health economists will model primary qualitative and quantitative data collected by the wider study and conduct a cost-benefit analysis.

The evaluation will inform decision makers at both local and national level on the ‘cost-effectiveness’ of a key component of NHS England's policy drive for 7-day services.

The full protocol can be found here. All publications are listed in the publications section of the HiSLAC website.
