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 vanguards
• 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.
