In addition to the opportunities available to network with national policy leads, professional bodies and peers at our Network conferences, members registered with the NHS Benchmarking Network are on a national Network email distribution of over 8,000 healthcare professionals.
Network members have the opportunity to put questions to our member community on any issue and receive feedback along with useful contacts and resources. This has proved hugely popular with members and acts as a fast track route to accessing good practice and making contacts in organisations who have successfully implemented change and good practice.
Recent topics raised include:
- Rostered 7 day Occupational Therapy Services
- Cleaning and Re-issuing Walking Aids
- Demand & Capacity Modelling for Mental Health and Community Trusts
- Monitoring of Continuity of Care for Patients (inpatients & community)
