Business Plan 2002 - 2003

This business plan sets out our specific objectives, targets and performance measures for the financial year 2002 - 2003 and our plans for meeting them. These objectives and plans have been informed by our overall purpose and the policy context in which we work. These issues are outlined in section two, together with an assessment of the challenges and opportunities the Institute faces in the coming year.

Section three sets out the Institute's corporate objectives for the year and what they will deliver and the supporting quarterly milestones. The board has agreed the following key objectives for the Institute's activity. The Institute will:

  • contribute to the improvements in the NHS set out by the Government and the Welsh Assembly Government in their responses to the Kennedy report
  • issue 22 new and three review technology appraisals, covering 79 individual technologies and representing 51 appraisal units
  • issue five clinical guidelines and three cancer service guidance documents
  • take responsibility for the Safety and Efficacy Register for New Interventional Procedures
  • complete the restructuring of the Confidential Enquiries
  • establish the Citizens Council to advise on the value judgements that underpin the Institute's work
  • achieve an efficiency gain by absorbing the effects of inflation
  • review how the Institute's work programmes can operate more efficiently.

Section four describes the various components of our work programme, for example technology appraisals and clinical guidelines, and explains how each area will contribute to the delivery of our objectives. Finally, section five sets out the resource framework for the year ahead. Further details are provided in the appendices.
