D&D Patient Flow Programme of the Year Award 2019

Last October’s Executive Patient Flow Summit offered us the space to hear from NHS executives and private providers alike on their approaches to tackling patient flow. The outcome was a rich tapestry of stories and insights into the patient flow projects, products and processes that are really starting to drive change to our health system as we know it. This year, we want to take the opportunity to shine a light on those patient flow programmes that are truly accelerating innovation to improve patient experience, outcomes, and hospital operational efficiency.

We would love to hear from you around a patient flow programme you have delivered – whether you are a trust, healthcare organisation, or private provider – we are interested in learning more about the programme you have deployed, and how it is beginning to drive change in the healthcare industry.
