Elective Care Essentials programme


Support for managers to improve the breadth and depth of their knowledge and expertise regarding the key components of elective care infrastructure that underpin and support sustainable delivery of referral to treatment, cancer and diagnostic waiting times.

Now recruiting for our next elective care cohort starting in March 2019

The elective care programme offers a standardised, practical and comprehensive programme of applied learning covering all aspects of operational management of elective care services. It will enhance participants’ knowledge, skills and expertise in elective care operational management and enable managers to do their job more effectively.

The programme has been developed and is delivered by the Elective Intensive Support Team and includes input from external experts regarding clinical engagement, information and reporting. A cancer specific programme has also been developed, targeted specifically at operational managers with day to day responsibility for cancer services. 

Future cohorts for both programmes will be held throughout 2019.
