In our latest tour of NHS private patient units (PPUs), Philip Housden analyses private patient revenue growth for 13 NHS acute trusts across the county of Yorkshire.
For this group of trusts, the accounts show that total private patient revenues increased in 2017-18 after a period of stagnation.*
Total revenues are estimated at £14.5m in 2017-18, up approximately 4% from £13.9m in 2016-17 (Figure 1).
This level of income represents a stable 0.27% of these trusts’ total revenues. This remains below the combined national average outside of London of 0.5%.
These 13 acute trusts vary significantly by private patient revenues (Figure 2, above).LOGIN OR REGISTER TO READ MORE……………
