Patient Pathway Plus User Group – 24th September 2019

We are really pleased to announce that the inaugural Patient Pathway Plus User Group Meeting will be taking place on 24th September 2019 at Sci-Tech Daresbury in Cheshire. We have been thrilled with the response so far with over 40 delegates already booked to attend what promises to be a really informative and enjoyable event. Collaboration, education, sharing best practice & networking will be at the very heart of the day!

This forum will provide an ideal opportunity to network with NHS Trusts who are using the PP+ technology to support proactive elective care pathway management/RTT, and organisations who are keen to explore opportunities to add further value to existing processes and procedures.

Date: 24th September 2019
Time: 10:30am – 4pm

Location: The innovation Centre, Sci-Tech Daresbury, Warrington, WA4 5FS
Motorway Links: Close to M56, M62 & M6
Train stations: Runcorn (10 mins), Runcorn East (5 mins) & Warrington (15 mins)

Lunch and refreshments will be supplied.

The NHS Constitution gives patients the right to access services within maximum waiting times, if used to its full potential PP+ provides the tools required to deliver significant improvements in productivity, efficiency and transparency of the entire pathway management process and ultimately support organisations in ensuring that patients are seen within maximum waiting times. We urge colleagues involved in the Elective Care Pathway/RTT management/administration process to attend this event.

Roles that will extract value from attendance are (but not restricted to): COO’s, Deputy COO’s, Elective Care/RTT management, Patient Access Managers, PTL leads, Validation management, Administration managers, Medical secretaries, Information management & Performance management etc
