Case Study: Handling Winter Bed Pressures at Derby Hospitals NHS FT

The newest hospital in the East Midlands, the Royal Derby Hospital cares for more than 180,000 people, as inpatients, outpatients, emergency cases and day patients.

Investment in technology is a key driver of the Trust’s plans, bringing cutting-edge technology to the healthcare environment to support patients and staff. With some concerns about their handling of winter bed pressures, the Trust made improvement in this area a top priority.

This case study has been produced following a presentation by Neil Radford, Head of Operations.
