We are excited to share that NHS Midlands and Lancashire CSU (MLCSU) will be both exhibiting and speaking at the Elective Care Conference South 2023. The conference, set for 5 October 2023 at 15 Hatfields, London, promises a comprehensive look at the evolving landscape of elective care.

The conference will focus on the following key discussion points:

– Enhancing capacity and efficiency: as the demand for healthcare continues to rise, so does the need for optimised capacity and efficiency.

– Patient-centred care and experience: placing patients at the heart of all initiatives, ensuring their care experience is optimal.

– Workforce resilience and collaboration: a close examination of the synergy between different roles in the healthcare sector and the need for resilience.

– Sustainable elective care systems: exploring methods and strategies to ensure that elective care is both efficient and sustainable.

Special session

We will be represented by:

Gemma Cowley – Head of Referral Management

Stephen Newton – Head of Contract Management

Priyantha Jayawardane – Deputy Director of Digital Innovation Unit

Our Head of Referral Management – Gemma Cowley will be hosting a session titled, Enabling Patient Choice – Facilitating System Mutual Aid at 9.05 am. This presentation promises to shed light on how the MLCSU, as an NHS organisation, utilises digital tools and methods in patient navigation, choice, referral management, and more. You can watch a short video to find out more about what Gemma will be talking about below.

The conference is designed for professionals with an interest in elective care processes and is an invaluable opportunity for NHS colleagues to share best practices, demonstrate their current offerings, and provide support. Our session will delve deep into strategies used in mitigating elective backlogs, as well as the digital tools implemented to garner intelligence on waiting lists.
