Well this is exciting @chesterfield_royal_hospital! Let’s hope capacity is increased in more hospitals to increase bed numbers and minimise Exit Block! #repost ・・・
It’s an exciting day for our Emergency Department team as the final phase of the development has been completed and becomes operational. A lot of work has taken place over the last year to increase the capacity of the department by 50%, introduce a purpose built area to stream emergency patients and redevelop the main ED entrance. Despite all of that work going on and a very harsh winter period, our ED team has continually come out as one of the country’s performers and they deserve a huge amount of credit for that. It is the entrance that has become the final piece of the jigsaw so, if you’re coming to our ED for treatment today, you can once again use the main department doors.

The College’s Lay Chair, Mr Derek Prentice, was delighted to meet Dr Anne Weaver (Consultant in EM and Pre-Hospital Care) and Mr Frank Chege (Patient Liaison Nurse) at the Royal London Hospital. Their work with London’s Air Ambulance to transform patient care before and in the Emergency Department and to help those who have suffered severe trauma injuries with their physical and mental recovery is outstanding.

Have a read of the RCEM’s latest Winter Flow project on our website! ❄️ Hospital systems used a range of reactive levers this winter, including cancellation of elective care, to try to manage hospital demand - demand which historically has grown, and will continue to grow. Insufficient capacity and resources in hospitals and social care compromise care in Emergency Departments. We need to properly resource and staff our NHS to give patients the care that they deserve.

Our President Taj Hassan had the honour of unveiling a blue plaque celebrating Maurice Ellis and Emergency Medicine today at Leeds General Infirmary. In 1952, Maurice Ellis became the first Casualty Consultant in the UK and he was the founding President of the Casualty Surgeons Association which has since evolved into the RCEM!

The RCEM today publishes its Winter Flow Report for 2017/18, which shows the extent of the struggles faced by emergency departments over the winter period, and the efforts providers took in order to keep afloat. 
The report confirms that, despite some improvements, winter of 2017/18 was one of the worst for emergency care system performance in the history of the NHS. 
Data was collected from 56 sites across the UK on a weekly basis from October to March and measured four-hour performance, acute bed capacity, delayed transfers of care, cancelled elective operations and the number of locums and agency staff sites employ.

Read the results on our website!

The College continues to call for safe and sustainable staffing of all Emergency Departments in the UK. We must ensure that the working environment, shift patterns and work-life balance promote rather than discourage staff recruitment and retention. This will mitigate the attraction of more lucrative work offered by other countries, decrease staff burn-out rates and would also improve patient care and satisfaction. 
Our #wednesdaywisdom for you is to show how much you value NHS staff by writing to your MP! Link in bio.
