Book online now

Follow this conference on Twitter #Outpatients

The Care Quality Commission inspections into hospitals to date have reported that outpatients is one of the main areas that needs improvement.  44% percent of the outpatients services rated by the  Care Quality Commission NHS acute hospital, as at 31 July 2016 were rated either inadequate or requires improvement.  Urgent and emergency services received the highest number of inadequate ratings (9%), followed by outpatients and diagnostic imaging (8%) (CQC State of Care Report 2016).

Outpatient clinics can be demanding environments. This national summit aims to bring together leaders of outpatient services to focus on improvement and the delivery of outstanding outpatient care and experience. The conference opens with an update from the National  Digital Outpatients programme which aims to use digital solutions to empower patients to access outpatient services via their phones, laptops or tablets from checking test results to remote speech and language therapy (NHS Improvement 2016).

The conference continues with an extended in depth masterclass which will contact interactive group work focusing on Improving, capacity, access, patient flow and waiting times in outpatient services. Further sessions will focus on improving patient experience, improving outcomes in outpatient services, developing and implementing core standards and the developing role of virtual outpatient clinics in reducing pressure on outpatient services.
