Quality, Innovation, Productivity and Prevention

National programme with ambitious task of identifying efficiency savings (£15-20B by 2013/14), improving productivity whilst continuing to deliver quality improvements.
Whilst these two seemingly contradictory aims are not necessarily incompatible, the results in practice seem to have been ahem massive swingeing cuts.

EWTD

European working time directive

Dictates a 48hour max working week plus a number of rest requirements:
– minimum of 11 hours’ continuous rest in every 24hour period
– minimum rest break of 20 minutes after every six hours worked
– minimum period of 24 hours’ continuous rest in each seven day period (or 48 hours in a 14 day period)
– minimum of four weeks’ paid annual leave
– maximum of eight hours’ work in each 24 hours for night workers.

 

Hospital at night

This was first proposed as a way of helping to comply with EWDT, and also maintain effective clinical care within the NHS.
The aim of HAN is to have a multidisciplinary team which has the full range of skills to provide immediate care to patients at night and the idea is that the MDT can handle emergencies for a variety of specialties. The team may be coordinated by a senior nurse, such as a clinical site manager.
Allows the reduction in numbers of junior doctors at night, without compromising quality of care.
