The Accident and Emergency Summit and Exhibition 2016
The future of urgent and emergency care
Accident and Emergency departments across the NHS are experiencing high levels of pressure due to rising patient numbers and funding cuts. People attending A&E jumped from 16.5 million in 2003/4 to 22.3 million in 2014/15, contributing to hospital failures to meet targets on processing and wait times.
A&E departments are also suffering from the staffing crisis that is occurring across the NHS, with a NICE report finding that they are short staffed almost half of the time. In addition to these already serious challenges, NHS funding cuts mean A&E departments across the country are being closed or merged, increasing pressures on remaining services.
Join us for The Accident and Emergency Summit and Exhibition - The future of urgent and emergency care for exclusive insights from policy makers and experts on the following topics:
Services – What approach can hospitals take to protecting standards of service despite austerity, staffing shortages and increased pressure?
Staffing – How can A&E departments meet the challenge of maintaining safe staffing levels in the midst of staff shortages and a clampdown on agency worker spending?
Funding – What impact have austerity measures had on the challenges facing A&E departments, and what can be done to mitigate these effects?
