Attendees will discuss NHS England’s commitments to urgent care and emergency medicine outlined in the ‘Next steps on the NHS Five Year Forward View’, including front-door clinical streaming by October 2017, the standardised rollout of Urgent and Treatment Centres (UTCs) by Spring 2018 and the alignment of renewed social care funding with emergency services, providing an integrated response to delayed transfers of care.

Further areas for discussion include the progress of the eight Urgent and Emergency Care vanguards, priorities for the emergency care workforce and the next steps for NHS 111 - both in going online for 2017 and increasing the percentage of clinical assessments provided by the service.
