Using diagnostics to enable new models of urgent and emergency care
Tue 27 June 2017, 09:30 – 16:00 BST
On Tuesday 27 June 2017, West Midlands and Oxford Academic Health Science Networks (AHSNs) are bringing together NHS urgent and emergency care directors and specialists, commissioners, medical and nursing directors, Sustainability and Transformation Partnership (STP) leads, NHS transformation and improvement leads, out of hours care providers, general practice, ambulance trusts and other AHSNs to examine NHS England's priorities for transforming services.
Professor Keith Willett, Director for Acute Episodes of Care at NHS England, will discuss the urgent and emergency care review, the progress that has been made and what has been learned, while also considering the challenges that lie ahead.
Louise Watson will discuss how the 14 vanguards in England, which are creating multispecialty community providers (MCPs), are developing new ways to deliver a sustainable and improved quality of personalised care, which includes moving specialist care out of hospitals closer to where people live.
Taking place in Warwick, this forum will examine different strategies to reduce the burden on our increasingly stretched A&E departments. Oxford and West Midlands AHSNs will lead this interactive forum and present case studies from across the UK and beyond.
Places at this forum are limited to facilitate active discussion between speakers and delegates. Early booking is advised.
CPD points have been applied for, and delegates can collect their certificate on the day.
