NHS Dumfries and Galloway Case Study: Balancing Capacity with Demand at Dumfries and Galloway Royal Infirmary

Executive Summary

The hospital’s improvement team decided to implement Daily Dynamic Discharge1 on one ward after being inspired by a workshop at a National Unscheduled Care event. It proved such a success that the model has now been implemented across the hospital and is being rolled out to the community. This is their story.
