Abstract

Describes a set of interactive planning models that can be used to explore the effects of changes in the variables of service supply consistent with existing policy trends or new initiatives. These effects are demonstrated through comparison of calculated performance indicators, which are the main outputs of the model. The development of performance indicators in the context of NHS planning is outlined, followed by a discussion of the use of these indicators for demonstrating geographical variations in the standards and forms of psychiatric treatment. Describes the model in more detail, the main inputs and variables, the outputs generated and its capacity to explore a series of planning issues. Presents some results from a series of runs of the model using both the data from existing services and with slight modifications to reflect possible policy developments. Assesses the potential applications and limitations to using such models for specialty planning. -from Authors
