Resource impact statement

No significant resource impact is anticipated

We do not expect this guideline to have a significant impact on resources; that is:

  • the resource impact of implementing any single guideline recommendation in England will be less than £1 million per year (or £1,800 per 100,000 population) and
  • the resource impact of implementing the whole guideline in England will be less than £5 million per year (or £9,000 per 100,000 population).

Where practice changes as a result of this guideline, there will not be a significant change in resource use.

Many of the recommendations are in line with existing requirements of the Care Act 2014, existing NICE guidelines and current best practice. There may be costs associated with raising awareness and training relating to some recommendations. However the costs from these activities are outweighed by savings to health and social care organisations.

Health and social care services are commissioned by NHS England, clinical commissioning groups and local authorities. Providers are NHS hospital trusts, community providers, mental health trusts, primary care providers, GPs and social care services.
