Working #asoneteam on new service to benefit patients

Working #asoneteam on new service to benefit patients
19 August 2019

The Intravenous Iron Team have gone above and beyond the call of duty for their patients - working together as one team to deliver a service which has cut costs and improved patient experience.

The service delivers intravenous infusions to patients and enables the team to provide high quality and rapid care to many surgical outpatients groups. These including colorectal, gynaecology and bariatric, and it is hoped the service will expand to many more areas.

The service has helped to lower costs in hospital and overnight stays, blood transfusions and ongoing aftercare for patients.

Gemma Stephenson, Senior Sister in Day Surgery, said: “I am so proud of my team, they have worked so hard developing this service in their own time and have really demonstrated the Trust value of working together as one team.

“We have seen approximately 500 patients throughout the past 18 months and have received great feedback so far.”

Well done team! #asoneteam
