Cohort 3 at St James Hospital, Leeds, had lots of opportunity ideas they wanted to work on. The team got together and called themselves the Pharmalabs. Using their new skills and lean learning they came up with the following project.
How we achieved our objectives
The team measured times, departments, number of taxis and compared the data over a period of February and March 2016 -1017
As a team we monitored the usage of taxis over the stated period, collaborated with estates, shared weekend and out of hour services and we found that 168 fewer taxis were being booked spending £1180 less which gave us a saving of 30%
