- Pharmacists can do more for the NHS
While there are many suggestions about how to improve the NHS, utilising different medical professionals in a more effective way is a point that is raised regularly. Just because the NHS has always operated in a particular manner doesn’t mean that this is the way it should always be. It is important to review the general workings and practices within the NHS and if there is a more productive way to care for patients and provide medical advice, it should be considered.
- Live information allows NHS to react quickly
If you are making decisions, the more information that you have, the better. This is something that the NHS is slowly coming to terms with. The organisation may have run well for years based on departments having an intuitive knowledge of what they need to provide a good service but in this day and age, there is no excuse for taking this approach. Technological improvements mean that information is available in the blink of an eye and a NHS Trust in Nottingham is reaping the benefits of an app that provides “real-time” information about staffing levels.
- Energy efficiency boosts NHS
With so much focus on how the NHS can save money and provide a better service to patients across the United Kingdom, there is a need to look at every aspect of the organisation. Any saving that can be made, without compromising on quality, should be made and just because something doesn’t have an immediate impact on a patient’s health doesn’t mean it should be overlooked. Improving the NHS or saving funds will help the organisation as a whole, so every step in the right direction should be praised.
