21st September 2017, Manchester
We would like to invite you to the 3rd annual Urgent Care Conference this year looking at Improving Patient Flow.
What action do we need to take to improve services for patients and reduce pressure on our staff within A&E?
NHS England has yesterday (Thursday, 13 July) announced a new set of performance targets for the ambulance service which will apply to all 999 calls for the first time (NHS England, 13.07.17). A step in the right direction to alleviate the pressures off the Emergency Department and controlling Patient Flow.
The conference agenda has been developed to show the current patient flow trends within the hospital urgent care system. Delegates will gain a greater understanding of how the problems occur from the start of the process, with the patient having attended the A & E department, through to the discharge process, returning back into the community and home
Join us at this years event to hear successful interventions that are reducing attendances to A&E and avoiding hospitalisation in the first instance.
Discover how delayed transfer of care can be reduced and medically fit patients can be discharged freeing up the acute bed they occupy.
