Focus on: high volume care

The Delivering Quality and Value team have now published a range of documents reflecting their work identifying, testing and promoting a comprehensive and detailed range of specific or system improvements along the entire patient pathway, from primary care through referral and treatment to discharge and rehabilitation for the following healthcare resource groups (HRGs) or similar groupings:

Earlier work

This follows the team's earlier initial work signposting high impact improvements that could be made in the areas:

  • Acute Stroke
  • Fractured Neck of Femur
  • Primary Hip
  • Caesarean Section
  • Short Stay Emergency Care

The work on these is summarised in the initial focus document (initial focus document 223.28 KB).

The Delivering Quality and Value team's final deliverable will be to produce pathway guidance in a form that allows it to be applied to further pathways or other care groupings by others in the wider NHS.

Further products

  • The team have now developed further products for local teams to adapt and use as their own, find out more about the DQV Document Designer here.
  • The team have recently published the Directory of Emergency Ambulatory Care for Adults.
  • The caesarean section team have developed a highly succesful toolkit.
