NHS Institute take initiative to join up care

“Patients might see up to 10 separate professions and be asked the same questions again”... “They are dealing with fewer people and there is a seamless transfer of information”...

This is just one before and after experience taken from a recent case study – the latter being the result of adopting a joined-up care approach, which the NHS Institute has now developed into a suite of products to help eliminate the duplication, inefficiency and waste which can create a poor experience as patients pass between organisations on their healthcare journey.


The NHS Institute’s Joined-up Care initiative has identified those areas that will make the bigger difference, and has integrated these into three new resources which can help you to deliver seamless care:


·         A practical guide to making change happen – outlining principles and methods required for successful joined-up care

·         Case studies – giving examples of practice and tips for success from NHS sites who have successfully utilised a joined-up approach

·         Making it happen: suggested tools and methodologies – a succinct and accessible guide to NHS Institute tools to help you optimise your application of joined-up care


You can access these now at www.institute.nhs.uk/joinedupcare


There is also a Joined-up Care conference in Manchester on 19 May.
