Value Stream 3 - Critical Care Flow

This Value Stream is looking at ways to improve the process of discharging patients from critical care to a neurosurgery ward.

The scope of the project runs from the moment the decision to step down the care of a patient in critical care is formalised until the time the patient is settled onto the neurosurgery ward.

The aim is to make the flow more efficient, improve the timeliness of step down  and give patients a better experience.
