Venue: Hallam Conference Centre
44 Hallam Street
Date: 6 Oct 2014
Synopsis: This conference focuses on meeting the national clinical standards and learning from the early adopter sites to deliver a 7 day health service in practice.
“By March 2017 patients will get the same level of treatment at weekends as they receive during the week.” Sir Bruce Keogh, Medical Director NHS England 22 July 2014
The 10 national clinical standards for 7 day working were published in December 2013. Sir Bruce Keogh national medical director for the NHS expects full implementation by 2017:
Sir Bruce says these standards “undo more than 50 years of accumulated custom and practice that have failed to put the interests of patients first”. He recommends they be adopted by the end of the 2016/17 financial year... We know that patients and the public want us to act now to make seven-day services a reality in all parts of the NHS.
