2nd Patient Flow: The Future of Urgent and Emergency Care Congress

08:30 am
27 Feb, 2019
Etc.Venues London

Last year in July 2018 the Convenzis Group hosted the 1st Patient Flow: Health and Care Improvement for Urgent and Emergency Care Congress, due to the success and popularity of the event we will be hosting the 2nd event in London on the 27th of February 2019.

“A briefing from Nuffield Trust warns that the NHS can no longer find enough bed space to move patients through hospitals quickly and meet key A&E targets and that its practice of counting patients at midnight means that the true scale of the squeeze is being missed.”

Across the NHS, staff work around the clock to deliver the best possible care to more patients than ever before, but it’s becoming increasingly difficult as demand continues to rise.

The current system is under increasing pressure, NHS England wants to improve the urgent and emergency care (UEC) system, so patients get the right care in the right place, whenever they need it.

Technology is changing and so is the way people access services and that’s why we are piloting NHS 111 online which will mean people can access urgent care services over the internet.

In the future, health records will also be available to clinicians however a patient accesses the health service, whether this is through NHS 111, by ambulance, their GP or A&E.

NHS England has set in place a series of pilots and programmes that will help to manage the current demand that the Urgent and emergency care services face, our conference will give you first-hand insight into these impending changes.

Key topics will include:

  • Paramedic prescribing
  • Ambulance Response Programme
  • From hospital to home programme
  • Urgent and emergency care vanguard
  • Urgent and emergency care channel shift model
  • NHS 111 online

Places are currently minimal for this event, so please get in touch today to register your place and avoid missing out on what is shaping up to be another engaging and insightful day.

We look forward to meeting you on the day.

The Physician Response Unit: ‘Taking the Emergency Department to the Patient

Dr Tony Joy

The Royal London Hospital, Barts Health NHS Trust
The Physician Response Unit is a collaborative service operated by Barts Health NHS Trust, London’s Air Ambulance and London Ambulance Service. It ‘takes the Emergency Department to the patient’ and responds to emergency calls in Northeast London with an Emergency Physician, an ambulance clinician and a well-equipped rapid response vehicle. 68% of patients are managed in the community, with excellent patient feedback. The service promotes the integration of care between the emergency sector and the community sector. Furthermore, this has saved approx. £850k in nine months through reduced ambulance conveyances reduced ED attendances and reduced inpatient admissions.


Reducing the longer lengths of stay experienced by patients post-emergency admission

Leigh Forsyth
NHS Improvement
Caroline Poole
Deputy Clinical Director and Professional Head of Allied Health Professions (AHPs)
NHS Improvement
Allied Health Professions (AHPs) comprise the 3rd most significant clinical workforce in the NHS. An evaluation undertaken in 2018 evidenced the leadership challenges faced by this group, with the consequence that their leadership offer can be overlooked, and their offer to people and populations are often poorly understood and sub-optimised. At the same time, the thorny challenges in managing urgent and emergency care are well documented. It is imperative we bring the clinical and systems relationship skills offered by them to the fore to help address this challenge. During the Autumn of 2018 AHP leads in provider trusts were invited to collaborate in a 90-day improvement journey to support the national ambition to achieve a reduction in longer lengths of hospital stay. This presentation will describe the leadership challenges, the improvement journey and the impact achieved.

A New Journey, Bexley CCG

Dr Mark Harmon
Chief Brand & Strategy Officer
Krista Burslam
Clinical Director for Urgent Care
With increasing attendances and growing demand on Urgent Care and Emergency Departments, the current situation is cause for concern. We also know that many attendances could be directed to more appropriate health provision, taking pressure off the system. We have developed a solution currently piloted across 240,000 patients in Bexley CCG (SE London) with the aim to remotely sign post patients from home to the right place for their symptoms, and to digitise their journey once at the ED.

Non-Executive Director
Beautiful Information
Having an aggregated real-time view of the current state of play in your regional health economy – be it Emergency Department (ED) or ambulance capacity, or primary care demand – is essential in managing patient flow and blockages in the system. Without it, it is impossible to manage. Hear how the Regional Operational Control Centre (ROCC) application delivers this, as we enter into the Same Day Emergency Care Agenda.

Delivering efficiency in Urgent and emergency care through PC improvement

James Kingsland OBE
Independent Clinical and Professional Adviser
Isle of Man Government and award-winning GP
The evidence is now established that where there is compromised access to primary care services, there is a corresponding increase is presentations to A&E and urgent care services. Often these presentations are not urgent or emergencies. To solve this problem a new primary care provider service is needed. The NHS LTP may have the answer.


Diploma in Urgent Medical Care of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh

Professor Colville Laird
Medical Director
Basics Scotland
The Faculty of Prehospital Care of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh is of the opinion that the management of urgent care and prehospital emergencies are areas of practice that are interdependent. The Faculty believes that urgent care is pivotal in reducing the workload of emergency medicine and improving patient care. However, The Faculty wishes to promote the provision of high-quality urgent care and has developed a new multi-professional diploma examination. This will provide clinicians with evidence their CPD in urgent care and emphasise the importance of this to the wider NHS.


Developing wider partnerships to expand multidisciplinary delivery

Karin Orman
Lead Professional Adviser for Royal College
Occupational Therapists
The Royal College of Occupational Therapists has been scoping different models for using occupational therapists and therapy teams to minimise the number of people with long term conditions presenting to emergency departments. The presentation will focus on the key elements from different service models that can be considered for wider roll out.


General practice at the heart of integrated urgent care

The Primary Care Foundation have now audited urgent care in over 1,500 general practices across the UK and will share what lessons can be drawn and applied as we develop integrated care systems. They have also developed a national tool for NHS England for modelling innovation in integrated urgent care and will reflect on what insights this might offer locally.

What our clients say about us

Working with Convenzis is a stress-free and a rewarding experience, with fantastic engagement from a highly targeted and relevant audience


I worked with Convenzis, primarily Dan, for the first time this year, putting together a bespoke online event for IBM. He has always been so responsive and accommodating. The team always remained professional and helpful – despite the many demands from our side! They were very keen for us to maximise on the investment and revisit those attendees who had not committed to follow ups.
It was an absolute pleasure doing business with Convenzis and I know there will be more opportunities next year. Looking forward to it!


In view of the recent NHS Oncology Conference organised by CONVENZIS which was sponsored by Pascoe Healthcare Ltd, CONVENZIS exhibited professionalism through credible organisation, invitation of delegates/respectable Speakers and general conduct of the entire conference. This has also shown that CONVENZIS is a great partner in business which is fundamental to ROI of partnering Companies even in the wake of the pandemic.
