Exciting new opportunity to join a team of nurses – working with technology to improve patient flow

UCLH has a Coordination Centre, which acts as the centre of patient flow management and bed placement for two of its inpatient hospital sites – University College Hospital (UCH) and National Hospital for Neurosurgery and Neurology (NHNN).   The centre brings together clinical site managers and bed managers from both of these sites, to work together using a new patient flow system and real time location technology.

The Coordination centre has hospital wide visibility of operational flows to help the team coordinate and support smooth running on the day and improve demand and capacity planning for our inpatients.  The aim of the Coordination Centre is to remove operational frustrations so that we deliver excellent care all of the time and make every day in hospital a value-added day for our patients.

We are looking for an enthusiastic and patient centred nurse, who has a passion for improving patient flow and reducing delays, to join the team.
