Emergency admissions by Trust - South East Coast

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. This policy will clearly directly affect trusts' income and thus they need to engage upstream with PCTs to reduce local demand. You can change region, or view national data.
