Blue Stream Academy will be attending the The Accident and Emergency Summit and Exhibition 2016 at Adelphi House in Salford, Manchester on Tuesday 18th October, 2016.

The Accident and Emergency Summit and Exhibition – The Future of Urgent and Emergency Care offers exclusive insights from policy makers and experts on the following topics:

  • Services – What approach can hospitals take to protecting standards of service despite austerity, staffing shortages and increased pressure?
  • Staffing – How can A&E departments meet the challenge of maintaining safe staffing levels in the midst of staff shortages and a clampdown on agency worker spending?
  • Funding – What impact have austerity measures had on the challenges facing A&E departments, and what can be done to mitigate these effects?

Join us for a unique opportunity to attend presentations by leading decision makers, quiz experts in keynote discussion panels, find solutions from best practice case studies, and network with other health professionals.

Discussion Points

The Accident and Emergency Conference boasts a variety of outstanding speakers from across public, private and charity sectors. Each one has been handpicked based on their expertise and achievements, ensuring that delegates enjoy only the highest quality presentations. A wide number of topics will be covered on the day, and delegates can expect speakers to discuss challenges, successes and case studies around the interest areas below:

  • The crisis in A&E is partly attributable to the increased pressure of rising attendance, which has jumped from 16.5 million in 2003/4 to 22.3 million in 2014/15.
  • Waiting time targets are not being met, with more than 100,000 patients having to wait 12 hours or more for treatment in 2015. In November of that year, just 87.1% were seen inside the four hour target, well below the 95% requirement.
  • Research conducted by NICE in 2015 found that A&E departments were short staffed almost half of the time. The NHS has attempted to tackle this issue by using agency workers to fill the gaps, spending £3.3 billion on this in 2014.
  • Health Minister Jeremy Hunt has cracked down on agency staff spending, setting a maximum hourly rate and capping the amount the NHS can spend on this resource.
  • Austerity measures mean many A&E departments are being closed or merged with other hospitals, putting additional strain on remaining services and prompting public outcry.

Who should attend?

Directors of Operations and Transformation, Chief Executives, Heads of Emergency Care, Directors of Nursing, Operations and Emergency Services Directors, Urgent Care Leads, Chief Medical Officers, Clinical Managers, Consultants, Directors of Service Delivery, General Managers and Lead Nurses. The forum is open to NHS Trusts and hospitals, CCGs, commissioning support units, ambulance services, community health organisations and the private and voluntary sector.
