3 Key issues for management The UK has a National Health Service (NHS) largely funded through general taxation, and most services are free at the point of delivery. The best ways to fund health service provider organisations, in terms of providing the greatest incentives for efficient and high quality healthcare, remain unresolved, despite repeated changes to organisational structures and financial regimes, especially over the last 20 years. Although it is a national health service, there are some differences in funding (and, increasingly, in policy direction) in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland in line with increased devolution of powers to those countries The discussion which follows has general applicability across the UK, but our focus is on the favoured generic approach in England (which accounts for over 80% of the UK population) has been to develop various forms of ‘internal market’, whereby NHS organisations have been divided into providers (delivering services) and commissioners (purchasing services on behalf of their local populations).

There are two subsets of admission criteria (A ‘severity of illness’ and B ‘intensity of service’); and three subsets of ‘day of care’ criteria (C ‘medical services’, D ‘nursing/ life support services’ and E ‘patient’s condition’). Examples of admission criteria from both subsections are: A3. Blood Pressure: a) b) B3. systolic < 90 or > 200 mm Hg; diastolic < 60 or > 120 mm Hg. Vital sign monitoring every 2 hours or more often (may include telemetry or bedside cardiac monitor).
