Summary

This project reviewed the method of estimating unavoidable staff cost variation in the NHS using the General Labour Market method. It proposed improvements in the method of deriving the MFF using more detailed data and the recent evidence on pay variations in the NHS and private sector. The geographical basis for the application of the methodology was evaluated and changes in this were proposed. The application of smoothing techniques to manage ‘cliff-edge’ issues was also researched and recommended.
