On behalf of the National Programme for Urgent and Emergency Care (NPUEC) the National Collaborative Commissioning Unit (NCCU) are commissioning Type 1 Emergency Departments in Wales through the "What does good look like for the Emergency Department in Wales Work Programme"
Visits to Emergency Departments are currently measured using the 4 and 12 hour target. This does not convey the individual patient experience. It’s time to change the conversation, as we look at the bigger picture.
Between December 2019 and January 2020 the Emergency Department Quality and Delivery Framework (EDQDF) programme had hosted a series of workshops attended by clinicians and other staff related to the delivery of emergency care. The purpose of these events was to explore two of the Pathway Improvement Projects namely: 2C Handover and 2D POETH/ Triage.
The Emergency Department Quality & Delivery Framework aims to bring together clinical and managerial teams from across NHS Wales’ Emergency Departments, to build 'what good looks like for emergency care' from the ground up and what local teams require to help deliver that shared vision, for the people of Wales.
