The HSJ Elective Care Recovery Virtual Series launched in March 2022 as a support tool for operational, clinical and commissioning managers across the NHS as they look for practical solutions and shared learning, in bite-size chunks. Each month we host a 45-mins webinar to bring together central perspectives with local innovators to examine case studies, explore best practice and identify transferable ideas that can be spread across the NHS.

This Autumn we’ll be continuing the conversation, hearing about the strategies which are being deployed across the NHS in tackling the backlog head on within constraints. We’ll be looking at new ways of working to overcome the workforce crisis; the role of digital and tech to aid efficiency and build capacity; collaborations across systems and Trusts to optimise waiting list management; and much more.
