Acute Care ambulance-3e

Identifying ways in which to improve patients' experiences and journeys through the health system has been a significant part of the work of Enable East. Our work to improve acute care pathways and streamline assessment systems has enabled a smoother transition for patients and achieved significant cost and time savings for health services.

Acute Care Collaborative

Enable East is currently working with a consortium of three acute NHS Trusts in one of the most financially challenged areas of the country.

Senior project leads are offering support to clinicians from across the three organisations to develop more integrated approaches to service delivery for key acute pathways including ENT, dental and vascular surgery.


Leadership Development & Emotional Intelligence Training for Critical Care Nurses

Enable East prides itself on providing a huge range of training programmes which can be tailored for each specific audience. We had the chance to work with a group of critical care nurses to deliver training on leadership development and emotional intelligence.


Opthamology Services Pilot Review

In 2012, Suffolk NHS commissioned Enable East to carry out a review of a pilot scheme aimed to determine whether it would be possible for a specific and clearly defined group of eye care services to be treated safely and effectively in the community setting in Suffolk. The scheme aimed to deliver cost savings as a result of more patients being monitored and treated in primary care rather than by Hospital Eye Services (HES).


Business Case for Rheumatology Services

Enable East was commissioned to carry out a review of a proposed new integrated pathway for the treatment of gout in the community. It was felt that by treating patients in the community with early diagnosis and intervention there would be room for significant improvements in outcomes for both patient experience and service costs.


Implementing Towards the Best Together

Enable East played an integral role in bringing about successful and effective changes to healthcare services in the East of England, as part of the region's 'Towards the Best Together' (TTBT) strategy.


Joint Assessment and Discharge service plan

Enable East was tasked with developing a training plan for a Trust's Joint Assessment and Discharge (JAD) service. The JAD team is responsible for the safe and timely discharge of patients from acute settings and it was felt that an effective training plan was required as part of the development of this new service.


Helping a new Integrated Care Organisation prepare for inspection

Enable East was commissioned by a newly formed Integrated Care Organisation (ICO) to help them to prepare for their first CQC inspection. A small team spent two days on site, interviewing the Trust Board and reviewing strategic presentation materials.
