Norfolk and Suffolk NHS FT – Demand and Capacity Model

SCL developed a demand and capacity model for NSFT which allows the Trust to forecast demand by patient type on a monthly basis, match that demand to the relevant type of capacity, and thereby project the short and medium term potential for Out of Area Placements.

The bespoke model is designed to accommodate NSFT’s data sets so that it can be updated for the most recent referral and admission data, and employs a flexible set of parameters which take account of conversion rates and length of stay for each specialty, gender and ICS, as well as existing number and types of beds. The model has the functionality for these parameters to be updated on an ongoing basis to allow for changes in operational reality, and therefor provides the Trust with a powerful operational planning tool.
