Patient Elective Care Access Policy

Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust (BHT) and Buckinghamshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) are united in their commitment to ensure patients receive treatment in accordance with national standards and objectives.  The purpose of this policy is to outline the expectations and requirements in terms of managing patients referred into all elective care pathways.

Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust (hereafter referred to as ‘the Trust’) is committed to providing a service that offers an exemplary standard of care to patients and to offer services that are fair and accessible to all, providing patient choice and delivering a positive patient experience.

The delivery of patient care will be patient focussed, clinically led and consistent with the values of the Trust.  Clear communication and transparency between all stakeholders, including referrers, hospital staff and patients, will underpin the delivery of services in the elective pathway.

The Trust is committed to provide sufficient levels of resources to provide the best care for our patients and treat them within national waiting time standards.

Patients are seen and treated based on their clinical need, providing fair and consistent access for all.
