South East Clinical Senates

Independent, clinical and strategic advice for health systems in the south east

Delivering 7 Day Services

Ensuring patients receive consistent, high standards of care, seven days a week, is a priority for the NHS. Early work towards this goal and baseline surveys of hospital services have highlighted the scale and complexities of the task necessitating some far reaching changes in the way care is delivered across the health and care system. In this work we listened to what is important to patients, carers and clinicians and discussing key issues with those already involved and those soon to be involved in the 7 day services programme rollout.
