Why Attend?

Radiology services are under significant pressure to deliver safe and timely services against a plethora of variable targets including:

  • 1 hour stroke
  • 4 hours Emergency Care
  • 2 week Cancer pathways
  • 6 week diagnostics, 18 week pathways
  • New 28 day referral to diagnosis NICE target.

Funding for Radiology services including funding for new and additional equipment is also under great pressure and competes against other acute Trust priorities. 

If Radiology services are to support these competing pathways and provide robust business cases it is important we understand the capacity need to manage the current and future demand on the service.

Radiology services are key to 90% of all clinical pathways and how Radiology services are provided can have a significant impact on length of stay, outpatient clinics and primary care access.

After attending this course you will understand: 

  • Demand, activity and workload - the definitions and how to collect these metrics
  • Flow and variation, including the impact variation has on how services are delivered
  • Why queues form, who and what creates queues, and why they grow
  • How to use clinical dashboards to demonstrate the pulse of the radiology system
  • The importance of correct measurement
  • The difference between flow capacity constraint and policy constraints.

This one-day course will provide radiographers, sonographers and managers with the knowledge and understanding of how to use good quality data to support day to day services and plan future services to support business cases.
