Following this event we added an immersive ambulance experience to our Transfer training for front line clinical staff.  This has enhanced human factor element of the training and reduced the reliance on LAS to provide valuable assets such as the front line ambulance to the increased number of training courses each year.

Further updates and progress on Innovations and patient safety initiatives were presented by clinicians from across the network includes;

The Patient Transfer bag - Winner of the 2017 HSJ patient safety award, this project standardised patient transfer bags across all hospital sites in NWL. 

Intra Hospital Transfer documentation - adding to the existing patient safety system of transfer training and audit across all hospital sites in NWL.

Safer Transfer App (STrApp) - supports clinicians when moving critically ill or injured patients to other departments for investigations such as MRI or CT scan or sometimes across to another more specialist hospital. This easy to use App sets out top tips on managing these complex patient transfers.
