Redesigning Patient Journeys

We want to reduce hospital based care for people with long term conditions (such as heart and lung problems), mental health and social care needs by redesigning pathways of care. We want to focus on providing more services in the community to allow hospitals to focus on providing specialist care that can’t be provided in a community setting or at home.

We want specialist health and care professionals to work alongside GPs and community services to look after people needs, which improve a patient’s care journey.

Benefits

  • Provide more convenient access to services for people who need it the most
  • Improving traditional communications between GPs and consultants, such as discharge letters and referral letters
