Seamless Surgery meets FCA

“I would definitely recommend taking part in Flow. A once in a lifetime experience.”
Nick Lee, Consultant Maxillofacial Surgeon and Certified Flow Coach
This is an invitation for Surgical Pathways & Flow Coaches from Sheffield Teaching Hospitals to join Cohort 3 of the Flow Coaching Academy from the Sheffield MCA.
Did you know… 60% of elective bed night opportunities for the Trust lie within 21 diagnostic groups? Maybe we can help release this through improving flow?

Seamless Surgery is a programme of improvement aiming to improve elective surgical pathways. The programme is engaging with the Sheffield Flow Coaching Academy in 2018 to apply team coaching skills & improvement science at a patient pathway level to accelerate improvement. 

If you are a clinician and can see potential for improvements for patients and staff within your pathway would you be interested in training as a Clinical Coach or putting your pathway forward? 
The programme starts February 2018 with teams from Northern Ireland, Birmingham and Exeter joining us in Sheffield.
If you are interested in helping other teams improve the care they provide to patients would you be interested in training as a Flow Coach? 
(The role of Flow Coach is open to all professional backgrounds, clinical or non-clinical)
