The effects of this coming winter on acute services are easy to predict but difficult to manage. Organisations across the country will be busy translating their winter planning into effective action to address seasonal shifts in demand for acute care.
The Emergency Department ‘front door’ is a critical pressure point in the acute care system and increasing attendances only add to this pressure. At GE Healthcare Partners we understand that winter pressures bring extra complexity to urgent and emergency care and this requires a more tailored approach than simply having a plan to meet more of the same demand in non-winter months.
Our clinically led approach focuses on the Urgent and Emergency care pathway with specific focus on Frail Older Peoples’ Care, to deliver high quality care to this vulnerable group, and to effectively manage pathways from the largest demand cohort for this period.
