South East Clinical Senates

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

National standard for urgent and emergency care

Giving due attention to issues of local clinical engagement and ownership whilst retaining focus on economies of scale, the SW Senate provided recommendations about how all health and social care communities can move from their current provision of urgent and emergency care to meet the emergent national service standard. This involved deliberation around: What services need to be co-located, consolidated or decommissioned? Which sectors need strengthening and investment? and What is the workforce redesign required to support the national guidance?
