star this property answer text <p>The Getting It Right First Time (GIRFT) programme aims to drive improvements in medical and surgical specialties through clinical leadership and the use of data to identify and reduce unwarranted variation in practice. By tackling variations in the way services are delivered across the National Health Service, and by sharing best practice between trusts, GIRFT identifies changes that will help improve care and patient outcomes, as well as delivering efficiencies such as the reduction of unnecessary procedures and cost savings.</p><p>Although there are no specific plans to include haemophilia as a condition area in the GIRFT programme currently, the ambition is that GIRFT will continue to expand to other medical specialities. Currently, areas are prioritised based on opportunity for improvements in patient care, suspected degree of variation and wide strategic priorities. Some examples of these work streams are lung cancer, paediatric critical care and neonatal intensive care.</p> more like this
