New pathways, new systems, new services, new roles… the Urgent Care agenda is radically transforming emergency and unscheduled services as we’ve known them, and fast.

Transcending the old boundaries of A&E and ambulance services, urgent care’s wide web of activities and providers hold the potential to achieve far more than meeting waiting time targets. Trusts nationally are now breaking silo thinking to deliver care in more convenient places, meet a wider spectrum of patient needs, and realise a new vision of emergency and unscheduled care provision.

Many challenges are involved, however, in transcending previous standards and innovating care delivery in this large and complex service area. Understanding the needs of both managers and clinicians involved in urgent care, HSJ proudly brings you its annual best practice forum. This key event will condense and deliver the resources and up-to-the-minute guidance you need, to maintain momentum in implementing the urgent care agenda in your health community.

Gain exclusive expert guidance on the very latest urgent care agenda, as strategy sessions and case studies empower you to:
* Fortify, ring-fence and integrate your ambulance and out-of-hours services and co-locate primary care within A&E
* Harness and implement new technology to link patient data systems and navigate streamlined pathways – from CMS to Hear and Treat
* Master capacity and demand management and intelligently commission a system of multiple urgent care providers
* Pioneer proven social marketing strategies to direct the public to the most appropriate services in urgent care
* Achieve collaboration between mental health services and urgent care
* Build a strong business case for your urgent care investment and develop a commercial instinct within the NHS

Join your colleagues and the experts as you explore the latest DH guidance, learn from best-practice, and take home the strategies and practical tools that will unite your urgent care providers in efficiency, collaboration and innovation.
