Patient Flow – the big picture

Sharing good practice

Marion Collict, former Executive Director of Operations, Risk & Governance at Luton & Dunstable University Hospital NHS Trust opens the day. She will be sharing how the Trust transformed its A&E target performance by taking the widest possible view of patient flow.

  • how integrated teams are reducing hospital admissions
  • the role of housing in dealing with patient flow issues
  • the importance of nurturing relationships between NHS and social care and how better communication can facilitate huge reductions in delayed transfers
  • harnessing assets from the voluntary sector and the important role the sector plays in keeping patients at home and out of hospital
  • exploring new opportunities arising from place-based systems of care and how key organisations plan to tackle DtoC
