Proactive reports

This report highlights the strategic and operational opportunities and areas of good practice. It is intended to inform further discussion between commissioners and providers to identify solutions, and deliver robust, consistent care to patients every day of the week.

  • Delivering seven day services is a system-wide issue. In 2014, the East Midlands Clinical Senate coordinated an unprecedented data exercise for seven day services. It looked at existing services against the national seven day standards for urgent and emergency care to identify the gaps and opportunities to fill them. This collaborative report is intended to inform wider planning to improve access to NHS services. Making seven day services work in the acute trusts will be highly dependent on corresponding improvements across community, primary, mental health and social care services.
  • Each trust also received their individual report with recommendations.
