    Capacity Planning- draft simple template

    It was lovely to meet so many colleagues at the NEQAS/BBTS meeting last week.

    As mentioned, I have attached a simple draft template that could be used to format your capacity plans, you just need to make sure you have the evidence to support your staffing requirements. Your own plans can then be made as detailed as required. The main thing is to identify what staff you need (realistically!), to keep your BB running with all activities including QMS, so take a look at your weekly staff rotas and identify the gaps eg Senior supervisor, serology bench bms, mla etc

    I would really appreciate some feedback and ideas to improve this form together on this forum so we can add to the UKTLC Standards (2014) which are being reviewed and we hope to update you with these changes at the July 2018 SHOT meeting.

    There will also be a link via the SHOT website later this week with some other documents.

    Many thanks!

    Thanks Rashmi - I have already referred to this document in a meeting I presented at yesterday in Wales - just minutes before you posted it in fact!

    As promised, the capacity plan can also be downloaded via the following link to SHOT ; https://www.shotuk.org/resources/current-resources/ These are situated at the bottom of the page with the other UKTLC resources.

    Many thanks!

    At our local Transfusion Managers meeting the topic of Capacity Planning came up. This was highlighted from a recent MHRA inspection and appeared that most around the table had not produced an active plan. As resources are continually being stretched we should ensure that all hospitals are aware that a plan needs to be in place. Rashmi has a simple plan that can be followed but we need to spread the word.
