WINNER: 2020 Delivery and Portsmouth Hospitals Trust: Urgent Care Performance and Culture Change

Targeting problems faced across the urgent care pathway, and subsequent staff morale, 2020 Delivery worked with senior management and frontline staff to make rapid improvements by running targeted “sprints”.

As a result, the four-hour performance was 4.4 percentage points higher during April-September 2018 than April-September 2017. Portsmouth Hospitals Trust now has 20 trained improvement leaders and is cultivating a trust-wide cultural shift towards daily, proactive problem-solving.
