Getting it Right First Time
A new video released by the Department of Health shows highlights from the National Orthopaedic Launch event from last year and provides an overview of the Getting It Right First Time (GIRFT) recommendations published by Professor Tim Briggs.
The GIRFT report reviews current practices and outcomes of NHS hospitals providing orthopaedic surgery in England, to identify and quantify variation in clinical outcomes, processes, patient experience, patient pathways, network arrangements, financial impacts and waiting times.
This video will assist Clinical and Medical Directors in briefing their orthopaedic surgical teams, as well as providing an overview. The video features leading professors and clinicians who highlight the main recommendations to remove unwanted variation and improve quality outcomes and efficiency in elective orthopaedics within their organisation.
