Urgent Care
Everyone’s problem
Urgent Care Plans
• Urgent Care –
– Everyone’s problem so nobody’s problem
• Why is it a problem
– High A&E attendances but
– Low admission rates
– Lots of people in A&E who needn’t be
Percentage of A&E Attendances
converting to Admissions
3
Over-crowding in A&E
Why it’s a very bad thing
• After admission through a crowded A&E
43% increased chance of dying at 10
days
• A&E stay of 4-8 hours increases
inpatient length of stay by 1.3 days
• A&E stay >12 hours increases inpatient
length of stay by 2.35 days
What can be done prior to
A&E
• GP Access
• Quality Premium (GP QOF)
– Ambulatory Care Conditions
– A&E usage

•
Anticipating urgent care demand

Tools Risk stratification - (in use in a fragmented way, i.e. separately in FT and Primary Care); not yet in use in LA
= opportunity to streamline, agree consistent cohort? e.g. at risk of admission
Standard Care Plan – opportunity
Standard work – across the pathway for this group involving teams and shared understanding, + time based
standards = opportunity (see Nottinghamshire work in progress on frail elderly pathway care standards)
Round Table Discussion
• On your tables you will be asked to
consider:
• Are we on the right lines with our plans?
• What else should we be thinking about
doing?
