The UK regulator of foundation trust (FT) hospitals has called on the sector to "provide incentives to engage clinicians in every aspect of service provision" to promote a culture of shared responsibility for clinical outcomes. This was the central message of a Monitor-hosted conference held this week on service-line reporting (SLR). SLR helps providers identify service improvement solutions and organise resources, taking into account such factors as future activity levels, according to a keynote presentation by Dr David Fish, medical director at University College London Hospitals NHS FT. The event supported the launch of two publications aimed at helping clinicians input their "shop floor knowledge" in the service planning process.
