HSJ Feature – What now constitutes effective performance on elective care?

Last month, in conjunction with the HSJ, our founder and Managing Director, Karina Malhotra, contributed to a webinar discussing what may lie ahead for elective care performance, and the challenges elective care currently faces which have been only highlighted by the current pandemic. Joined by an expert panel, Saffron Cordery, Deputy Chief Executive at NHS Providers, and Professor Catherine Urch, Divisional Director for Surgery, Cardiovascular and Cancer at Imperial College Healthcare Trust, interesting insights were shared during the stimulating discussion.


These included ideas on how the existing measures for elective care performance may no longer be fit for purpose with instead looking at tools such as a clinical harm and priority matrix, and highlighting the need for high data quality and engagement from all, including involving clinical leaders much more than is often currently seen.


Following the on-demand version of the webinar being made available, the HSJ has now published an article summarising some of the key points made.
