Reducing the length of stays in hospitals. Mobilising patients and staff.

Dear Hexitime colleagues and comrades,

It's much better for a patient's physical and mental wellbeing to leave hospital as soon as they are medically optimised for discharge.

Yet each year, nearly 350,000 patients spend more than three weeks in acute hospitals. Many are older people with reduced functional ability (frailty) or cognitive impairment.

Prolonged stays in hospital are incredibly harmful as described here. The benefits of reducing hospital bed occupancy are clear, therefore, but achieving it has proven difficult - particularly during winter.

In Walsall, patients' average length of stay is 1 day longer than the average across the country of 9 days. Hexitime and Walsall Together have joined forces to tackle this problem.

Our immediate ambition is to bring this down to the national average level within 6 months. This campaign gives you an opportunity to play your part and be a part of something bigger.

Simply tag your activity or profile to this campaign and, working together, let's reduce the length of stay in hospitals.

With sincere thanks,

Hesham, John and the Walsall together team.
