Recent statistics have revealed that there has been a significant rise in the number of people attending Accident & Emergency departments in the UK. As a result, the NHS is struggling to meet demand, amidst the realisation that extra funding will not be forthcoming, and despite constant efforts to reform the system and relieve some of the pressures by signposting to other areas of healthcare provision.
This year’s Urgent Care: Improving Patient Flow conference, which will be taking place in Manchester on 21 September, will focus on the measures that can alleviate the congestion and successfully restore a dynamic flow. The conference will explore the current patient flow trends within the hospital urgent care system. Delegates will gain a greater understanding of how the problems occur from the start of the process, when the patient attends the A & E department, through to the discharge process, returning back into the community and home.
A line-up of expert speakers will provide insight and opinions and stimulate debate as to how to relieve the burden on hospitals and reduce the pressures of compromised patient flow. A number of initiatives and examples of best practice from the health and social care system will be showcased and there will be ample opportunity for interactive discussion and networking amongst fellow professionals and peers.
