Patient Flow: Health and Care Improvement for Urgent and Emergency Care for 2018

We have places to attend our Health and Care Improvement for Urgent and Emergency Care for 2018. This event will be looking into whats been achieved and what must be improve in healthcare across the UK. It will be held on the 10th July in Manchester at Etc.Venues.

Each year the NHS provides around 110 million urgent same-day patient contacts. Around 85 million of these are urgent GP appointments, and the rest are A&E or minor injuries-type visits. Some estimates suggest that between 1.5 and 3 million people who come to A&E each year could have their needs addressed in other parts of the urgent care system. They turn to A&E because it seems like the best or only option. The rising pressures on A&E services also stem from continued growth in levels of emergency admissions and from delayed transfers of care when patients are fit to leave hospital. Working with NHS England we are opening open up valued discussions between peers and demonstrating the great work that is already being done across the UK.

Are you looking to make a change to how our Urgent Care system operates or simply trying to understand more on how you can help?
