The move to relax the rules on the Referral-To-Treatment (RTT) 18 week target could see the number of people waiting for surgery going above 4 million for the first time since September 2007. This reduction in surgery will impact upon the patient experience, but also on the budget.

We believe there is a better way – and whilst no mean feet it's not rocket science. By introducing new modeling to the patient care pathways – including demand and capacity, bed modeling and a 6 week planning model – our end-to-end elective pathway solution addresses the RTT challenge.

Unipart Expert Practices recently helped one trust to deliver a 33 week reduction in average RTT waiting times, which reduced annual fines by up to £360,000 in a single specialty.
