Meeting ICP Urgent and Emergency Care System Delivery Board
Meeting Date 17 August 2021
Key decisions and actions
The Board noted the recent data which showed a reduction in a number of areas including NHS 111 triaged calls, see and convey, ambulance handover delays, trolley breaches and attendances at both A&E and urgent care, however, the proportion of NHS 111 A&E recommendations remained significantly above pre-Covid levels. Further analysis was provided around attendances and a number of issues were identified, including breakdown of data by acuity, age group, GP practice and reasons for attendance. Following discussion several areas for further analysis were identified and it was agreed that that there should be consideration of how to become more solution focussed as a Board moving forward and discussions would be held outside the meeting.
