  1. Managing demand for secondary care services : the changing context.

    Article - En anglais

    There has been a sustained growth in demand for hospital services, which has been accommodated despite a decline in bed numbers.

    Further ways of managing demand for secondary care include condition-specific waiting lists, medical assessment units, use of protocols, and a single point of access to non-hospital alternatives.

    Once patients are in hospital protocols can help limit their stay, but the biggest impact will come from discharging patients to other forms of care.

    We need a new currency for secondary care, couched in terms of what needs to be done, rather than where it is done.
