How Clinical Support Services Can Help Reduce Patient Wait Times in the Covid-19 Recovery Plan

Apr 30, 2021.

The ongoing news of an NHS Covid-19 recovery plan, which will see the acceleration of the delivery of operations and other services to help the health service recover from the pandemic is key when it comes to reducing patient wait times, and by using Clinical Support Services, you can help boost your own Trust’s recovery plans and ensure the best in high-quality, patient care.

Why Clinical Support Services?

Whilst clinical services are part of every NHS Trust, the need for additional clinical services support – with regards to effectively managing patients’ healthcare pathways, improved patient wait times and cost savings, is increasing. This need is ever more prevalent during the current pandemic.

The Covid-19 Recovery Plan

NHS hospitals across the country are bracing themselves for impact on patient wait times when it comes to the Covid-19 recovery plan. And whilst recovery is underway with the welcome news that average wait times on non-urgent surgery has dropped by almost 40% since the summer and the roll out of 40 NHS mental health hubs to help support staff, hospitals are under still under pressure to maximise their capacity on non-urgent operations.

This means that the demand for reliable, high quality healthcare and medical support to ease the burden on existing staff has never been greater.
