Productivity in the health service: COVID-19

This short project sets out the methodology used to calculate health productivity in the UK, and trace why the measured productivity has declined so substantially during the pandemic. It supplements this with case studies of Addenbrooke’s Hospital and the Manchester Foundation Trust and will set out a future research agenda for health productivity.
