Moorfields Eye Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is one of the 13 acute care vanguards which aim to “link hospitals together to improve their clinical and financial viability, reducing variation in care and efficiency”.
The Moorfields vanguard team has spent the past year exploring whether the longer-term sustainability of single speciality services can be strengthened by entering into a networked care partnership, and the other benefits that the model might bring.
The team was keen to understand what makes the biggest difference for patients, staff and partner organisations in getting things right first time when establishing a networked care partnership; and to identify the best way to sustain services so that specialist care can continue to be offered locally.
The team’s findings are shared in the toolkit, an online resource with evidenced-based learning that other trusts can use to evaluate whether networked care could help their smaller clinical services. It has practical advice on how organisations can establish their own network in the way for them. Its free to register and the toolkit is easy to use and navigate and includes :
Best practice for a sustainable (clinically and financially), successful, specialist networked care model across multiple locations with the largest positive impact on patients, staff and partner organisations.
Evidenced-based learning to help you decide whether a networked model of care will make your organisation more sustainable.
Practical advice, guidance and frameworks to enable you to establish your own network in the way best suited to your local circumstances.
The toolkit also includes recommendations on how to:
- ensure consistent quality of care at multiple sites
- ensure a sustainable workforce
- maintain effective partnerships
- develop sustainable specialist care
- provide a standardised quality of care
