Planning resources for renal services throughout UK using simulation

Davies, Ruth and Roderick, Paul (1998) Planning resources for renal services throughout UK using simulation European Journal of Operational Research, 105, (2), pp. 285-295.

Record type: Article


The number of patients needing treatment for irreversible renal failure has continued to increase over the last decade.
This study uses discrete event simulation to explore the overall demand for treatment in United Kingdom (UK) over the
next 15 years. Data were obtained from national and international data sources. The results show that the numbers will
continue to increase in the foreseeable future with an expected increase in costs of two to three hundred million pounds
over the time period.
