COVID-19 has changed healthcare delivery in the UK. New and innovative ways of working have been rapidly developed across the NHS. As we move into the next phase of COVID-19, we want to act quickly to ensure that beneficial changes and innovations are captured and sustained in the new NHS as it evolves in the coming months and years.
NHS England and Improvement want to hear from healthcare professionals across the system.
We want to hear from clinicians, clinical leaders, Royal Colleges, professional bodies and other interested stakeholders over the next 4-5 weeks to identify, beneficial changes and innovations in a systematic way. This will directly inform both the light touch planning guidance coming out in June as well as longer term planning over the rest of the financial year.
Please do contribute to this survey and also cascade this link to others:
The survey asks the following four questions:
- What beneficial innovations/changes have occurred in your specialty and within patient pathways?
- Please describe the impact of these innovations/ changes (e.g. population health outcome, patient outcome, safety, wider system, efficiency, productivity). How did you measure the benefit?
- What is needed to sustain the change?
- What, if anything, hasn’t worked so well?
We will also be working with the patient and carer engagement team to ensure they are involved.
We are keen to move at pace on this in order to safeguard the key innovations that have already taken place and would therefore be grateful if you would encourage you networks and stakeholders to reply as soon as possible. The final deadline for submissions will be 30 June 2020.
