Winter is Coming

20 / 12 / 2018

More than a third of health and care leaders involved in winter planning were not confident in the ability of their local NHS to deliver safe care this winter.

The NHS Confederation sent out a short survey to Accident and Emergency Board chairs, drawn largely from acute trusts and CCGs, as well as Ambulance Trust chief executives between November and December.

Respondents were asked how confident they were in their local NHS’s ability to deliver safe care this winter.

In total, more than a third (35%) of all respondents were either not very confident (29.6%) or not at all confident (5%) in the ability of their local NHS to deliver safe care this winter.

Yet there is room for some optimism: 16.7% of respondents were somewhat confident in the ability of their local NHS to deliver safe care this winter, and 7.4% were very confident.
