Waiting List Validation

The Centre for Sustainable Delivery’s National Elective Coordination Unit provides local and national waiting list validation in partnership with the digital solution provider DrDoctor.

Waiting list validation helps ensure that information held is accurate so that we can appropriately allocate and prioritise appointments and remove people who no longer need an appointment or procedure.

Waiting List Validation:

  • Allows us to contact thousands of patients at once to find out if they still need an appointment or operation.
  • Allows patients to comment on their needs when requesting to stay or be removed from the waiting list.
  • Reduces administrative validation of waiting lists from 6 weeks (paper-based validation) to just 10 days.
