Students are to develop a health business case including a zero-based budget that shows skills in breaking down costs fora service or project in relation to planned activity levels and outcomes or deliverables. This business case is to be developed from one of the examples available on VOWS or in discussion with the class tutor.
For your chosen service or health facility prepare a budget for this new service or project. Prepare this in a report format as discussed in class and as outlined on the vUWS website. Remember that outputs as well as financial data is required.
In preparing the budget, students should show the build-up of the budget from a zero base including all significant line items.
A contingency plan must be included (what happens if desired funding is not available to the optimal level desired) with at 10% less than the optimal budget. Show deletions and cost cutting measures.
Include a financial activity analysis and a break-even analysis chart to show at what level of activity the service 'breaks even'. In the public sector this means to come in on budget rather than make a profit
