Event description
Find out how Yorkshire & Humber AHSN and NHS England are supporting NHS organisations to plan for elective service recovery post pandemic

About this event

One consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic has been the growing backlog of patients on waiting lists for elective services. As pandemic response activities continue slow down, the NHS is starting to restore and ramp up the delivery of non-urgent services. There is a clear need for healthcare systems work differently in order to optimise service efficiency and manage the patients in their waiting lists effectively.

Yorkshire & Humber AHSN are hosting this webinar in partnership with NHS England's Yorkshire & North East regional team to provide an over view for healthcare organisations and systems across the region about programmes of work that are taking place to support elective recovery.


The agenda for this webinar includes:

  • Kathy Scott, Deputy Chief Executive at Yorkshire & Humber AHSN will provide an overview of their innovation and improvement programmes and how they can support organisations with recovery.
  • Professor Tim Briggs, National Director of Clinical Improvement for the NHS and Chair of the Getting It Right First Time (GIRFT) programme and Mr Graham Lomax, GIRFT Deputy National Delivery Director, will focus on the work GIRFT is undertaking to support systems and regions with Elective recovery, and the opportunities to work collaboratively to optimise clinical pathways at a system and provider level.
  • Dr Liz Lingard, Transformation Lead (North East & Yorkshire), NHS England and Improvement will discuss how the national Health Inequalities Programme, with its regional networks, connections with partner organisations and systems are aiming to ensure that we build back fairer and work to reduce health inequalities as we go about recovering our Elective services.
  • Q&A session

Who should attend

This event is open to anyone with an interest in knowing more about these initiatives but it will be of particular interest to those working in outpatient services, non-urgent surgery and in the commissioning of elective services.

Organiser Yorkshire & Humber AHSN

Organiser of Mechanisms to Support Elective Recovery

Yorkshire & Humber AHSN is one of 15 AHSNs set up by NHS England to operate as the key innovation arm of the NHS.

Across the country AHSNs act as a bridge between health care providers, commissioners, academia and industry. By connecting these sectors, we help to build a pipeline of solutions for the NHS from research and product development through to implementation and commercialisation.

Locally we work in partnership with our regional health and care community and develop projects, programmes and initiatives that reflect the diversity and meet the needs of our local populations and health care challenges.

We understand the needs of our health systems and are well placed to broker innovative solutions, while collaborating with AHSNs across England to take what works best and quickly spread it nationally.

At Yorkshire & Humber AHSN we believe in the power of new ideas to improve lives and our ambition is to work together with all our partners to make life better for the people in our region by improving their health and care and by creating a thriving economy for everyone.
