Restoring and transforming elective trauma and orthopaedic services at James Paget University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

This webinar will explore our elective recovery project at James Paget University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust focusing on improving their elective trauma and orthopaedic services.

Facing theatre capacity issues with a high number of elderly patients with complex needs, the CLEAR team analysed clinical insights and patient data, and made practical recommendations for improvements including seven-day physiotherapy for quicker discharge, elective care coordinators for early identification of patients at risk of late cancellation, and theatre improvement leads for more efficient workflow.

This work was part of our CLEAR elective recovery programme commissioned by NHS England to support delivery of the NHS elective recovery plan which aims to increase capacity and cut waiting lists for elective care.

Clinicians from trust and project team will discuss the challenges they faced, how they navigated the CLEAR methodology and projected impacts.
