Resource impact statement

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 will be less than £1 million per year in England (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 £9,100 per 100,000 population).

This is because it is considered that where clinical practice changes as a result of this guidance, there will not be a significant impact on resources. The cost of additional hysteroscopy is likely to be offset by savings from fewer ultrasound investigations and fewer appointments required for treatment following the diagnostic test.

Heavy menstrual bleeding services are commissioned by clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) and NHS England. Providers are NHS hospital trusts and primary care.
