The patient pathway now for Mr Edwards
Is on to a trolley down that long corridor
And into the morgue. With improved direction management
Attainment of his aspirational journey goal
Is 98.6%. After that there is a handover
And, being task-oriented, we move on
As, indeed, Mr Edwards does.
It used to be thought, by the way,
That he would be taken to the banks of a river
Or triaged for his final destination,
But we don’t think that way now.
Off he goes.
