Description:
This protocol has been developed to ensure that all administrative, managerial and clinical staff follow an agreed national minimum standard for the management and administration of waiting lists for scheduled care, regardless of whether patients are active, suspended, scheduled or planned, public or private. The protocol describes the essential elements that are fundamental to ensuring there is a consistent structured approach to the management of the waiting list for inpatient, day case and planned procedure patients in hospitals in Ireland. Whilst it is acknowledged that administrative and managerial functions vary between different hospitals, and that one person may take on several roles, channels of accountability and levels of responsibility should always be clearly defined.
