A national bespoke system, called NHS e-Review, has been developed and launched as part of the NHS Covid Incident Recovery programme. The online system has been developed to support clinicians record the clinical priority of patients on a waiting list and to identify alternative pathways for patients if required.
- Reassure patients they have not been forgotten during the coronavirus pandemic.
- Establish the patient's wishes regarding treatment.
- Good communication with patient and GP.
- Produce a validated waiting list that allows operating lists to run effectively.
All Trusts are required to complete a clinical validation of patients on an admitted patient care pathway by 23 October, and for it to be captured in NHS e-Review.
Trusts will be required to identify four user groups for the system; a user to upload patients to the system, an administrator, a super user to upload and download waiting lists and the outcomes from clinical reviews, and a clinical reviewer who is responsible for reviewing a cohort of patients within a specialty.
