The Productive Series
Releasing Time to CareTM
Series: Releasing time to careTM - is a programme developed by the NHS Institute for Innovation and
Improvement to help front-line staff spend more time on patient care, reduce waste and improve efficiency. The
Government aim to introduce the Productive Ward methodology into 100% of Acute, Mental Health, Community Hospital
wards and Community Services teams by 31st March 2013. The Productive Series programmes have already been adopted
by a high percentage of organisations and front line teams are using the tools and methodology to improve care,
increase the time spent with patients, deliver process efficiencies and financial savings.
To supplement The Productive Series, we have produced a suite of e-learning programmes designed to increase understanding of The Productive Series.
They provide progressive learning levels designed to range from informing an absolute beginner about what The Productive Series provides,
to accrediting a leader with experience in implementing strategic transformation within an organisation.
The Programmes within the series and the related products are detailed below:
