NHS survey into clinical innovations during COVID-19

Posted 2 June 2020

Date: 02 Jun 2020

Type: Covid-19 (Coronavirus)

NHS England and NHS Improvement have released a survey to identify beneficial changes to care provision during the COVID-19 pandemic, so that improvements and innovations to clinical pathways can be identified and retained in the longer term.

Clinicians, clinical leaders, Royal Colleges, professional bodies and other interested stakeholders are invited to participate. Responses will directly inform both the light touch planning guidance coming out in June as well as longer term planning over the rest of the financial year. 

The survey asks the following four questions: 

1. What beneficial innovations/changes have occurred in your specialty and within patient pathways? 
2. Please describe the impact of these innovations/ changes (e.g. population health outcome, patient outcome, safety, wider system, efficiency, productivity). How did you measure the benefit? 
3. What is needed to sustain the change?
4. What, if anything, hasn’t worked so well? 

If you are interested in responding, you are encouraged to do so as soon as possible. The final deadline for submissions in 30 June 2020.
