Trinity Hospice had an increasing caseload with a finite team of specialist nurses. In collaboration with Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, The Hamptons Nursing Home and Sandycroft Nursing Home, they introduced weekly virtual clinics.
Over a seven month period, 501 hours of clinical time was saved by reducing wasted travel time and over £12,000 of savings were made with an 88% increase in efficiency being achieved. Feedback from patients has been very positive of the new way of working and the project has enabled closer collaboration between partner organisations.
This innovative, digital system revolutionised patient care and improved effective use of time and resources, won two awards in 2019.
