CIO conversations: Digitising Waiting Well

Webinar | Thursday 18th April 2024, 2:00pm – 2:45pm

The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust

Join us and Sally Atkinson, Patient Access Service Manager, Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust and John Clarke, Former-CIO of UHL, in conversation about the concept of Waiting Well for patients.

NHS waiting lists in England have fallen for the fourth consecutive month as of February 2024, but the number of patients waiting more than 18 months to be seen has increased, according to new figures.*

With longer waiting times, what does waiting well actually mean? What are the benefits around it – for patients and for trusts? And how can you put it into practice?

What you’ll get from the conversation:

  • Hear from our panel of CIOs on the challenges they face around helping patients in waiting well in their trust and why solving these challenges is so important
  • Understand the possible reasons for these challenges and how best to try and alleviate them
  • Discover how one of the biggest NHS trusts has tried to help their patients to wait well and the technology they are using to support this
