WINNER: PA Consulting Group and Leeds Teaching Hospitals Trust: Theatre Scheduling – Using data to maximise efficiency and use of resources

Leeds Teaching Hospitals Trust deployed a scheduling tool to treat more patients within its existing capacity. It made forecasts of lists and signposted additional patients wherever possible.

The tool provided management information, using the data for patient references. This reduced overruns by 30 hours a month with an estimated 480 additional patients to be treated each year.
