Transforming urgent and emergency care services in England


NHS England are asking NHS staff, patients and the public for their views on their plans to improve urgent and emergency care services in England. NHS urgent and emergency care services provide life-saving and life-changing care for patients who need medical help quickly and unexpectedly. Across England these departments are under increasing pressure and NHS England wants to improve the urgent and emergency care system so patients get safe and effective care whenever they need it.


NHS England have developed a survey to gather views on the evidence base and guiding principles they have developed to inform their review. You can complete the survey . They have also now produced an easy read version of their survey and plans, click here to download. You can complete this and send onto NHS England. The deadline for completion of the survey is Sunday 11 August 2013.
