What delegates came to discuss…
This conference will look at service transformation, standards, and performance, as well as the role of community services and preventable admissions.
The discussion will reflect on key developments, including:
- NHS England’s Clinically led review of urgent and emergency care standards: Measuring performance in a transformed system - with:
- responses to the NHS consultation
- ten updated measures aiming to improve patient experience and create more effective emergency departments, with targets in four categories:
- pre-hospital - ambulance response times and avoidable trips
- emergency departments - handover times, assessment times, and waiting times for those not admitted
- hospital - time spent in the department for those who are admitted
- system-wide - patients spending over 12 hours in A&E and critical time standards
- the Health and Care Bill - which aims to support the integration of care between all actors within the health system in local areas
- recovery from the pandemic - with transforming urgent and emergency care identified in the Queen’s Speech as a key aim in the Government’s plans for NHS recovery
- investment in emergency care through the pandemic - including £450m for A&E improvements and £24m for NHS 111 to enable the service to establish itself as the access point for urgent care
