Emergency admissions by PCT - North East Strategic Health Authority

The introduction of a marginal tariff is likely to affect the level of emergency admissions. It is hoped that capping 2010-2011 income at the level of admissions for 2008-09 and only paying 30% of tariff for activity thereafter will reduce admissions. While they are reducing their liability in respect of the trusts, PCTs should be actively managing demand locally. You can change region, or view national data.
