Sharing lessons from the Vanguard
A number of new materials have been produced by the Foundation Healthcare Group (FHG) Vanguard, Guy’s and St Thomas’ pioneering partnership with Dartford and Gravesham NHS Trust.
Three key reports which provide valuable insight into the clinical and organisational challenges experienced by the two trusts are now available to read - End of Year Report, Clinical Faculties Report and Group Model Report.
In addition, Dr Catherine Meilak and Dr Anna Whittle have written a blog which describes their experience of being part of the clinical team delivering the innovative 'Proactive Care of Older People undergoing Surgery' (POPS) service at Darent Valley Hospital.
Finally, four members of the team have been filmed talking about significant aspects of the Vanguard programme, including moving specialist care closer to home, better outcomes for older people undergoing surgery and how working in partnership is delivering tangible benefits for patients.
