October 06, 2021

Kettering General Hospital has had two examples of the way it delivers great patient care accepted for use in national reports designed to spread best practice across the NHS.

The hospital’s case study examples have contributed to the national Getting It Right First Time (GIRFT) programme designed to improve medical care within the NHS by reducing unwarranted variations. 

GIRFT reviews look at NHS services and produce reports that identify changes that will help improve care and patient outcomes, as well as delivering efficiencies and cost savings, across the NHS. 

Kettering General Hospital’s GIRFT Lead, Dr Simon Hetherington, said: “We are enormously proud that the work we have done to improve patient care has been accepted as case studies for these important national reports. “They are fine examples of how our teams have worked together, in collaboration with our health partners, to tackle very real issues in ways that benefit patients, save money, and highlight lessons for other NHS organisations.”
