Editorial


In this edition we look at the problem of access block, a major barrier to delivering safe and timely care to patients in hospitals. We present four cases that demonstrate how the negative consequences of access block are far-reaching and affect every stage of a patient’s journey through the healthcare system.


Our expert commentary on access block discusses the lessons learned from the cases in this edition, and looks at the role every clinician can play in addressing such a systemic and pervasive and preventable problem.
