Currently many people are facing a long wait for operations. We are working hard to reduce waiting times, but we also want to support people to stay as well as possible whilst waiting.
What can we do to help people to “flow” through the system effectively while improving coordination of care, patient safety, and health outcomes?
How could we improve the way outpatient appointments are delivered?
How can we support patients to have more flexibility, control and choice over their planned care, through better information and communication?
Can we improve the pathways for people to reduce avoidable delays by ensuring we are making the best use of the latest technology, clinical time and expertise, for example building on My Planned Care and the NHS App?
