The internationally renowned Esther model in Jönköping, Sweden is an exemplary case of how leadership and a new working culture can lead to health system transformation, significant benefits for patients and improvements in efficiency.
"At a time when the NHS is looking at new models of healthcare delivery, I am convinced that this experience can offer inspiration to NHS leaders looking for successful examples of healthcare system transformation," wrote NHS European Office director, Elisabetta Zanon, in January 2015.
Here Anna Carlbom, medical office nurse and Esther coordinator talk us through the model and what it has achieved.
