Commissioners and providers talk unscheduled care ahead of urgent and emergency services review

Commissioners and providers of ambulance, urgent and emergency care services will take part in two webinars exploring issues around unscheduled care on 12 February, ahead of a review of urgent and emergency services led by Sir Bruce Keogh.

Held jointly by the NHS Confederation and the King's Fund, the webinars will consider;

  • why change is hard to achieve
  • developing solutions to issues in unscheduled care
  • what ambulances need from the rest of the system
  • how ambulance services can unlock change in the system.

Keogh review

The webinars are particularly important in light of the recently announced review of urgent and emergency care services, led by NHS Commissioning Board medical director Sir Bruce Keogh. The review will set out proposals for the best way of organising care to meet the needs of patients.

NHS Confederation chief executive Mike Farrar said the review will "help clarify the best arrangement of services."

Tailored webinars

A webinar specifically for commissioners, in collaboration with NHS Clinical Commissioners, will be held from 12pm to 1.30pm on 12 February, followed by a session for ambulance providers from 2.30pm to 4pm the same day.
