New series of blogs on urgent and emergency care review

A new series of blogs by National Clinical Director for Urgent Care for NHS England Jonathan Benger are to be released updating the public on the work of the Urgent and Emergency Care Review.

Phase 1 of the Review was released in November last year by Sir Bruce Keogh who outlined proposals for a radical shift in care, with more extensive services outside hospital and a change in the way patients access emergency care.

Since then, the Urgent and Emergency Care Delivery Group made up of senior representatives from more than 20 different clinical, managerial and patient associations has been meeting regularly to begin Phase 2 of the review – implementing the proposals.

Over the coming weeks and months Professor Jonathan Benger, National Clinical Director for Urgent Care for NHS England and a senior consultant at University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust, will be publishing a blog on the work going on behind the scenes.

The first has been released today – read the first of Jonathan Benger’s blog.
