City Hospitals Sunderland Use Lean to Improve Hip TreatmentIntensive Lean improvement event reduces patient pathway by 28%

The nature of patients presenting with hip fractures is such that they are likely to have an underlying ill health issue and with an ageing population the pressure on the healthcare system due to hip fractures is only set to increase.

The team decided to utilise Lean improvement processes to review their current ways of working and identify how improvements might be made to the patient pathway from presentation at A&E to subsequent follow-up.
