‘Luton is simply the best’
Reading an article produced by the BBC recently regarding an NHS Tracker initiative launched two years ago, which provides the public with information about waiting times for A&E, cancer and routine operations and mental health therapy; the Team at Phew were delighted to note that the Luton & Dunstable Hospital Trust were lauded as ‘the only service to consistently meet the A&E and cancer targets – in fact, during the length of the tracker project, it has never missed either.’
The article goes on to talk about the systems they use to deliver this exemplary service, ‘It also has a state-of-the-art operations centres – fully digitalised – that allows managers to monitor which beds are occupied and how long patients have been waiting. This helps keep patients flowing through the system – and when bottlenecks build up, they can be identified and dealt with quickly.’
It was great to hear that Phew’s Patient Discharge Management System launched in December 2018 with the Trust is having such an influential impact on L&D’s patient status – congratulations L&D!
