West Midlands Health & Wellbeing Innovation Network are working with UHUK, a consortia of urgent health care suppliers, to deliver a first of a kind innovation programme.

This programme aims to solve the “workforce optimisation” challenge with a focus on:

> Ways to share information to improve urgent health call handling time and improve pathways assessments.

> Provide symptom specific worsening advice to both patients and other healthcare services to save time, improve safety and reduce inappropriate re-attendance to services.

> Improve patient expectation by providing access to queue management and coordination activity.

If your solution solves one or more of these challenges, or you know one that does, get in touch with Joshua.dale@warwick.ac.uk or apply below.
