“Around 6,000 people lose their lives every year because we do not have a proper 7-day service in hospitals. You are 15% more likely to die if you are admitted on a Sunday compared to being admitted on a Wednesday. No one could possibly say that this was a system built around the needs of patients” Jeremy Hunt, Minister of State for Health, 16 July 2015
“Be in no doubt: if we can’t negotiate, we are ready to impose a new contract…by the end of the Parliament, I expect the majority of hospital doctors to be on 7-day contracts.” Jeremy Hunt, Minister of State for Health, 16 July 2015
This conference concentrates on delivering the national priority of seven day NHS services, with a particular focus on hospitals and acute care. The conference will look at meeting the 10 national clinical standards for seven day services. NHS England have set down a requirement for at least five of the ten national seven day services standards to be implemented by March 2016, with compliance with the remaining five standards required from April 2017 onwards. Through national updates, and case studies from early adopter sites, the conference aims to enable you to meet the challenge of delivering your service on a full seven day basis.
