Patient Transfers between Hospitals

Please could we request the following information under the FOI act, (or by another means if you believe that is more appropriate.). 

–       a copy of the patient inter-hospital transfer document/proforma and guidelines used by your trust.  The forms below are used within the whole South-East Critical Care Network.  Each transfer sheet is carbon copied so that one copy stays with the patient and the other returns to the transferring unit for audit purposes.

 

    Checklist 1.1 (2)

Transfer form 1.3 (2)

 

–       The number of incidents reported involving the transfer of surgical patients between hospitals or trusts between March 2015-March 2016.  Zero 

–        The number of surgical patients transferred between hospitals or trusts between March 2015-March 2016.  The number of surgical patients transferred between 1st March 2015 and 31st March 2016 = 41.  It should be noted that the Royal Surrey County Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is also a tertiary referral hospital for a number of specialties resulting in movement to the Trust for surgery and them movement back to the original hospital once care has been completed.
