In April 2011, Jim Easton, National Director of Improvement and Efficiency, wrote to NHS Chief Executives inviting them to join a Product Pricing Project.  This pilot benchmarking exercise was to examine the prices paid by individual trusts for the same goods, and promote the greater transparency between trusts that is needed to deliver greater efficiency, as well as demonstrate the benefits of trusts sharing their pricing information. The attached document is the Foundation Trust Network’s summary report of the results.
