NHS Dumfries and Galloway: balancing capacity with demand

Case study focusing on patient flow and Daily Dynamic Discharge at Dumfries and Galloway Royal Infirmary.

Daily Dynamic Discharge in the Community

The success of the Daily Dynamic Discharge approach in Dumfries and Galloway Royal Infirmary led to growing interest across the community. In November 2016, a test of change began at Annan Community Hospital (18 beds), 16 miles east of Dumfries. Annan used the same preparation and pre-implementation process as Dumfries and Galloway. There are plans to extend Daily Dynamic Discharge to the smaller acute Galloway Community Hospital (46 beds).
