Commissioning and delivering enhanced seven-day NHS services

26 / 05 / 2016

The NHS Confederation is putting together a report that will explore the key evidence about an enhanced seven-day NHS, and which sets out our thinking on how we deliver the right balance of care across all seven days of the week and all relevant parts of the health and care system.

Over recent months, the question of delivering an enhanced, seven-day NHS has become intertwined with the junior doctors’ dispute and it is now important that we move the debate on and effectively decouple the two. The question of seven-day NHS services represents an important part of the wider quest to transform care and it is important that it is viewed in this wider context.

The full report, which will be published later this year, will help support our members and others to assess the broad range of evidence that has accumulated over recent years, and to assist our members across the breadth of the NHS and their partners in local decision-making about seven-day services.
