Shared Referral Pathway : Mid Yorkshire Hospital Trust, Wakefield CCG, North Kirklees CCG, Wakefield GP Practices and North Kirklees GP Practices

This programme was created to improve patient care and clinical outcomes by designing and implementing a new Shared Referral Pathway, linking Primary and Secondary Care to:-

  • facilitate collaboration between Primary and Secondary Care clinicians when providing patient care;
  • stream line the process of referring a patient into Secondary Care through communication across a single pathway with a single consultant; and
  • ensure that patients are referred into Secondary Care at the appropriate time, with the right level of information and to the right place first time.

A joint system wide approach, involving 85 people across two CCGs, Primary and Secondary Care.
