Fundamentals for Quality Improvement
Reducing Delays in Patient Care - Seven Ways to No Delays


Driving up the quality, efficiency and productivity of patient care is not just about reducing delays; it is about changing the way we deliver care and manage processes to improve services for patients.

Seven Ways to No Delays is a guide to improving services in the NHS.  It has been written for clinicians and managers and provides information and detail on tried-and-tested quality and service improvement practice used successfully in the NHS.

The guide outlines what to focus on and what to do to help clinical teams in both primary and secondary care get the most out of the precious time spent reviewing services.

Following the guidance in Seven Ways to No Delays will help you to improve the quality and productivity of patient care you provide.
