Demand and Capacity models

In partnership with NHS Improvement’s Elective Care Intensive Support Team (IST), we have produced a suite of Demand and Capacity models using accepted methodology. This makes sure of a consistency of approach across all health economies.

While the NHS does not have a prescriptive approach as to which models should be used, those wishing to use the models can access them and their user guides (where available) on NHS Improvement’s Elective Care Improvement Hub.

To support colleagues in the NHS to use these models, we have produced video tutorials.

The videos walk users through the navigation, data entry and outputs of the various models, as well as providing general tips for effective use.
