We've identified a number of areas where providers have implemented effective and innovative solutions to improve A&E performance and patient experience.
We've worked with providers across the north of England to develop an alternative approach for delivering A&E services. Instead of more performance management, NHS providers applied an improvement methodology and mind-set.
The 90 day improvement and innovation cycle shows there's fantastic and innovative work being done by the NHS to manage A&E performance and to do the best for patients in very challenging circumstances.
What we did in 90 days
- map patient flow metrics currently in use and work alongside trusts to improve the data collection and analysis of patient flow metrics in real-time
- identify the 'best in class' examples of performance at each stage of the patient pathway for urgent and emergency care across the region
- connect teams to each other to rapidly share best practice
