Arranging for elective patients to be admitted in date order

Reduce the number of queues into two categories - urgent and routine. Agree your local definition of clinical priority and arrange for urgent patients to be admitted within 6 weeks - then make sure that others 'wait in line' - this will avoid last minute adjustments and enable you to advise patients of their expected wait time
