Event description

Description

The urgent care system is at breaking point. NHS figures from the winter of 2017-2018 were the worst on record with January 2018 marking the 30th month in a row that the four-hour target has been missed. This was even after the large-scale cancellations of non-urgent treatment that occurred in order to prioritise urgent and emergency care. Over 80,000 patients waited on trolleys for more than four hours at A&E in January, 1,000 of which were waiting for over 12 hours - the highest numbers since records began. Our 4th Annual Urgent Care Conference: Delivering Integrated Solutions will seek to address how we can avoid crises like these in the future.

Sustained austerity measures over the last several years have led to reports regularly hitting the headlines of the continuous problems within urgent care. Bed-occupancy for overnight acute beds have risen from an average of 87.1% in 2010-11 to 90.4% in 2016-17. Some hospitals have been at 95%. In addition, 13% of patients spent longer in A&E than the four-hour standard during 2016-17.

The amount of day-only beds (used when patients require same-day procedures) has risen by over 520% since 1987-1988. With the UK population expected to grow to 74 million by 2039, increasing and improving NHS capacity as a whole is becoming ever more important. Moreover, with an ageing population to take care of and, with those aged over 80 having the highest rates of A&E attendance, there is likely to be ever more strain on urgent care services. Our conference programme will examine in detail the many facets of urgent care and what can be done to improve the situation and provide practical solutions.
