Introduction

NUH were faced with a range of challenges causing an increase in strain in outpatients. Staff at the Trust were experiencing dissatisfaction due to hectic schedules as well as the increased potential for errors caused by time constraints. The Trust looked to tackle this by setting a target to reduce face-to-face follow-up activity across NUH by 30% within one year. 

DrDoctor was already working with NUH to improve waiting times across the Trust, having lowered the DNA rate by 30% and saving £1,722,000 a year between 2015 and 2017.
