Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (OUH) has been highlighted for its innovative approach to reducing delayed patient transfers, which have reduced from 123 in January 2016 to 57 in June. OUH’s work was highlighted in an interview with the trust’s Chief Executive Dr Bruno Holthof by the Health Service Journal.

 

OUH has employed care support workers to help tackle delayed transfers of care, with Oxfordshire previously struggling compared to other parts of the country. Chief Executive Dr Bruno Holthof, who joined the trust in October 2015, said 75 acute beds have been released as a result of the changes.

 

The trust will be involved in a collaboration with primary, community and social care providers across Oxfordshire, with the trust expected to be the lead provider to care for frail and older people. 

 

Dr Holthof also discussed the excellent relationship between OUH and Oxford University, adding that his personal ambition was to work on “breakthrough improvements” with researchers and clinicians to improve ways to treat disease.
