Health Funds

As a doctor owned hospital, we will co-operate to meet agreed reform objectives, as part of a pricing regime:

• working cohesively together for the benefit of the patients

• Reduce or eliminate doctor gap payments

• Reduce length of stay through latest medical technologies, and pre admission planning and optimum clinical pathways

• Substitute inpatient rehabilitation with home-based support where appropriate (for the vast majority of cases, except where frail and multiple co-morbidities)

• Where possible, address how prostheses costs can be reduced

• In mental health, reduce length of stay (IP and Day), reduce readmission rates, intensify psychiatrist control over inpatient and day program attendance
