Isis Town and Country - - News -

WIDE Bay Hos­pi­tal and Health Ser­vice’s (WBHHS) ap­proach to re­duc­ing wait­ing times for en­doscopy pro­ce­dures to four weeks has been lauded at the Queens­land Health Awards for Ex­cel­lence. The strat­egy was un­der­taken in July last year when 4500 pa­tients across the Wide Bay were wait­ing for di­ag­nos­tic en­doscopy pro­ce­dures. The work of the WBHHS sur­gi­cal ser­vices team that has im­proved the clin­i­cal path­way for en­doscopy pa­tients re­ceived a Di­rec­tor-Gen­eral’s Commendation for Fos­ter­ing In­no­va­tion. “The Di­rec­tor-Gen­eral’s Commendation for Fos­ter­ing In­no­va­tion is due recog­ni­tion for the WBHHS sur­gi­cal ser­vices team’s achieve­ment of the low­est en­doscopy wait­ing times in Aus­tralia,” Wide Bay Hos­pi­tal and Health Ser­vice chief ex­ec­u­tive Adrian Pen­ning­ton said.
