Lean has received a lot of attention in the NHS over the last year. However, even those pioneering its use in UK healthcare systems would admit that the scale of improvements it has delivered so far are quite limited. It certainly hasn’t yet realised the whole system transformational potential, evidenced by its achievements in industry.

Health Service Journal presents the following two events on Lean, which will provide essential information for organisations looking to commence or progress their Lean journeys. Book a place at both events and receive one of the places at half price.

Lean Healthcare: Driving service transformation with Lean thinking
17th October 2007, Ibis Hotel Earls Court, London

This is an event is for those with some knowledge of Lean and expands on previous events. In recognition of how Lean is developing as Trusts continue on their Lean journeys, it moves on from transformation across a range of service areas, whole pathways and entire health systems.

Case studies include:

Using Lean to deliver sustainable whole system cultural transformation

Making Lean work between organisations – the challenge of developing Lean pathways

Delivering Lean service transformation in mental health

Lean theatre utilisation: Improving patient flow and developing Lean pathways

Developing the use of Lean to transform primary and community care

Fundamentals of Lean
Understanding and applying the principles of Lean thinking in healthcare
16th October 2007, Ibis Hotel Earls Court, London

This is a practical introduction to Lean, which has been designed specifically for those new to Lean. It explains the principles of Lean and their application within UK healthcare, and provides training in the value stream mapping that’s central to Lean. Experienced Lean consultants will also deliver a comprehensive skills development workshop, which will teach you how to run a Lean rapid improvement event. So that you have the skills to take home and become a Lean champion in your Trust.
