Review of 2009/10 Radiotherapy reference costs

When the Department of Health published 2009/10 Reference Costs in January 2011, we were asked by the National Cancer Action Team (NCAT) to produce a review of radiotherapy reference costs.

This was an update to a review of costing and tariffs based on 2008/09 Reference Costs we had published in July 2010.

The report provides an overview of the data available from reference costs and calculates key ratios by provider. It then assesses the usefulness of reference cost data in calculating tariffs that could be employed in commissioning radiotherapy services from April 2011.
