NHS England's Urgent and Emergency Care Review Team have today published an Update on the Review on our NHS Choices pages: nhs.uk/NHSEngland/keogh-rev...
The Update itself is accessible here: nhs.uk/uecreviewupdate
This document sets out what the Review has been doing since we last formally reported in November 2013. It reports on progress with NHS England’s work with local commissioners and the development of their five year strategic and two year operational plans, planning to develop demonstrator sites to trial ideas flowing from the Review, and work that has taken place to deliver a new NHS 111 service specification.
The Review's core aim is to support greater collaboration across the urgent and emergency care system. A new approach to reimbursing providers of health and care services is key to this. Today NHS England and Monitor have therefore also published a discussion document setting out the options for reform to the urgent and emergency care payment system to kick start this debate. You can access more information about this here:
We hope you find the Update on the Review useful, and we look forward to hearing your thoughts.
