Case Study: Counting the cost of NHS investment - the need for a fixed asset management solution

Foundation trusts are aiming to increase capital expenditure in a bid to deliver new services that transform patient care, increase specialisation and attract patients from outside the local area. However, whilst they benefit from having far more independence that other organisations within the NHS, they are under even greater pressure to demonstrate strong project management and capital expenditure investment decisions that deliver quantifiable value to the local community. If the persistent trend in under-spending capital budgets is to be reversed, these organisations need to embrace far more effective processes for project monitoring and measurement, as well as improving their control over the accuracy of the asset register.
