Abstract

<h2>Unit Costs of Health and Social Care 2005</h2><p><p><h3>Compiled by Lesley Curtis and Ann Netten</h3><p><p><p>This is the latest updated volume in a well-established series bringing together information from a variety of sources to estimate national unit costs for a wide range of health and social care services. It aims to improve unit cost estimates over time, drawing on material as it becomes available, including ongoing and specially commissioned research. <p><p><p>The report consists of sets of ‘schemata’ or tables, which as well as providing the most detailed and comprehensive information possible, also quote sources and assumptions so users can adapt the information for their own purposes. Also included are: an editorial discussing current and new developments; brief articles providing background to user services and descriptions of cost methodology or use of cost estimates; price indices; a reference list of key studies; a glossary; and indexes. <p><p><h3>New in this edition</h3><p><p><p>This year’s volume includes new articles on the costs of providing home care, the costs of recuperative care housing, typical costs of Sure Start local programming services, and the DH Personal Social Services Pay and Prices Index.
