As the NHS continues to plan for the winter flu season, new analysis reveals that the start to the financial year has seen frontline staff cope with record A&E attendances, high bed occupancy levels and improved discharge rates.
In its report on the Performance of the NHS provider sector for the quarter ended 30 June 2018 out today (Tuesday, 11 September), NHS Improvement has revealed that A&E attendances increased to 6.23 million over April, May and June 2018 – 220,574 more than the same period last year.
The RNOH and the London Sarcoma Service would like to invite patients and their carers to join them for a coffee. This is an opportunity to discuss their experiences of the Sarcoma service and the quality of our care.
We are keen to listen and make appropriate changes to ensure we deliver a high quality service. There are two events next month:
Wednesday 4 October - 9:00 am - 12:30 pm: RNOH.
Wednesday 17 October - 4:30 pm - 7: 30 pm: University College Hospital in London.
If you are interested in attending either of these events or would like further information, please email Gemma French at email@example.com.
Do you have views on current bone & joint surgery, such as hip and knee replacements? We want to hear from you.
North London Partners in health and care (NLP) is launching a review of adult elective orthopaedic care services (planned surgery of bones and joints) across north central London.
In the first phase of this review, the partnership is inviting responses to a draft case for change – a document which shares why the review is needed and early thoughts on how this kind of surgery might be organised in the future. This review will run through to Spring 2019 with this initial intensive engagement phase running until 19 October 2018*.
