Abstract

Overview. Current policy in the English National Health Service (NHS) promotes concentration of the specialised treatment of relatively rare and complex conditions into a limited number of specialist centres. However if a more complex patient case-mix leads to specialised treatments being systematically more costly than non-specialised treatment, then the national tariff payment system based on Healthcare Resource Groups (HRGs) may punitively penalise centres that perform this activity.
