Abstract

<h2>Unit Costs of Health and Social Care 2000</h2><p><p><h3>Compiled by Ann Netten and Lesley Curtis</h3><p><p><p>This is the eighth volume in a series of reports from a Department of Health-funded programme of work based at the Personal Social Services Research Unit at the University of Kent. The aim is to improve unit cost estimates over time, drawing on material as it becomes available, including ongoing and specially commissioned research. <p><p><p>The costs reported always reflect, to a greater or lesser degree, work in progress, as the intention is to refine and improve estimates wherever possible, drawing on a wide variety of sources. The aim is to provide as detailed and comprehensive information as possible, quoting sources and assumptions so users can adapt the information for their own purposes. Brief articles are included where new services or other pieces of information need clarification or explanation. <p><p><p>The editorial identifies the new developments in estimates included and key current issues in the estimation of costs and use of the information provided in this report. <p><p><h3>New in this edition</h3><p><p><p>This year we have included new information from research about mental health day care costs, family support workers, costs of counsellors in GP surgeries and practice nurse salaries. We have also updated previous information on care packages and sheltered work schemes for people with mental health problems. The results are reported in the individual schema for each service. In addition we have used a general local government inflator rather than the PSS inflator that was used in the past. <p><p><h3>Availability</h3><p><p><p>If you would like a printed copy of this report (price 15 UK pounds including post and packing), please contact the <a href="mailto:pssru_library@kent.ac.uk">PSSRU librarian</a> in Canterbury (phone +44(0)1227 827773) or <a href="../pdf/uc2004/uc2004_flyer.pdf">download an order form</a> in PDF format. <p><p><p>The <a href="../pdf/uc2004/uc2004.pdf">2004</a>, <a href="../uc/uc2003.htm">2003</a> and <a href="../UC2002.htm">2002</a> editions are available online, although we have no more printed copies of the 2002 issue. <p><p><h3>Copyright</h3><p><p><p>The PSSRU retains the copyright in the Unit Costs series.
