Future Hospital – Tell us your story

Through the Tell us your story initiative, the Future Hospital Programme is collecting stories of clinically-led service improvement in the NHS. The stories explore the challenges hospitals face and describe how they were overcome with the hope of encouraging a network of sharing and learning

What we are doing

The Future Hospital Commission report is not a set of defined instructions for how every hospital should change, but rather a direction of travel for the evolution of hospital care. In the Tell us your story initiative, the Future Hospital Programme is collecting case studies that illustrate how the Future Hospital principles are being translated into practice.

The case studies span a wide range of disciplines and outline solutions to a variety of challenges facing the NHS today. The stories have been organised into five core themes: 7-day services; integrated care; person-centred care; improving patient safety and developing the workforce.

Tell us your story

The Future Hospital Programme (FHP) aims to develop and implement the RCP’s vision for the future of medical care in hospital and community settings. Submit a story of your innovative practice and be part of a movement to revolutionise patient care.

All case studies undergo a quality assurance assessment and are published with full authorisation from the author and the organisation they represent.
