Pathway framework design and costing model(s) for Sexual Assault & Referral Centres (SARCs).

SARC services are currently undergoing a revision in funding arrangements between NHS and Police commissioning bodies.  Pathway Analytics conducted a costing review of SARC pathways in four different regions. We highlighted funding inconsistencies at a national and local level, as well as wide variations in service cost and
 delivery models making it difficult to identify and promote best practice. We proposed a new framework of client definition sets & developed a costing model that can be used throughout the service.
