The WY-FI model: the financial impact on service costs

Leave a comment

This briefing provides an overview of the costs and savings associated with the WY-FI model.

Over one year the general pattern was for:

  • reduced service use and costs savings for negative reactive events such as crown court proceedings and arrests (savings for criminal justice and police)
  • increased service use and costs for treatment events such as days as a mental health inpatient (costs for NHS). The increased costs were preventative, potentially avoiding future costs

The document also includes examples where other models have been commissioned as a result of the impact of WY-FI.
