ED and COPD networks
We have been supporting acute trusts across the region to improve the safety and patient outcomes by effectively and rapidly sharing, adopting and spreading evidence-based interventions, products and tools.
In order to facilitate some of this work, we have convened two networks:
The UCLPartners Emergency Department Network
The Emergency Departments (ED) network aims to improve the safety of patients attending emergency departments by providing opportunities for ED multidisciplinary teams across the region to collaborate, network and share learning. The Network’s clinical lead is Anna Swift, Senior ED Matron at UCLH, and is open to all grades and professions, individuals or teams working in or alongside EDs.

The UCLPartners COPD and Asthma Discharge Bundle Collaborative
As part of the Adoption and Spread programme, UCLPartners is supporting teams within its geography to increase the proportion of eligible patients receiving the chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and Asthma discharge care bundles. This work is part of the National Patient Safety Improvement Collaborative.
This collaborative aims to improve the safety of patients who are admitted to hospital following an exacerbation of their Asthma or COPD, focusing on the utilisation of the COPD and Asthma discharge bundles.
This programme involves respiratory teams in hospitals from our region who care for patients with Asthma and/or COPD, providing opportunities for collaboration, peer support, and sharing of learning.
The clinical lead for this collaborative is Dr Swapna Mandal, Respiratory Consultant from the Royal Free London and is open to all professionals, individuals and teams working with Asthma or COPD patients in the inpatient setting.
