NHS England is seeking patient engagement and input into the Length of Stay (LOS) Programme.
We are planning to hold an engagement event with key leaders and interested parties to outline the LOS programme on 20 January at 10am to 1pm (registration opens at 9.30am). Lunch will be included. The venue is still to be confirmed but will be in Leeds city centre.
We would also like to invite a key patient network leader to take part on the LOS Oversight Group meeting to maintain a focus on inclusion of the patient voice across the programme. Attendance would be on a quarterly basis.
The LOS programme advocates that patients are discharged (either home or to a care facility) rather than remaining in hospital when clinically appropriate and without unnecessary delay. Unnecessarily prolonged stays in hospital can significantly decondition patients, increase the risk of falls and expose patients to infections.
NHS England and NHS Improvement is offering coaching for Patient and Public Voice (PPV) partners as part of its ongoing support offer.
