Data collection for the 2017 Emergency Care benchmarking project is now open
The Emergency Care project is open to all providers of emergency care services, reviewing the provision of Accident and Emergency services (Type 1&2) as well as alternative community based services such as Walk-In Centres, Urgent Care Centres and Minor Injuries Units (Type 3).
The Emergency Care project supplements available national metrics by looking at the detailed workings of A&E departments and alternative walk-in facilities. The project includes profiling of service models, access and waiting, infrastructure, activity, workforce, finance, quality and outcomes.
The timescales for this project are as follows:
- Project opens for data collection – 10th May 2017

- Data validation – August and September 2017
- First draft comparisons and analysis toolkit – September 2017
- Emergency Care Benchmarking Conference (London) – 4th October 2017

Projects outputs include a benchmarking toolkit, a bespoke report for your organisation, a high level national report outlining key messages and metrics for services nationally, and free attendance at our Urgent and Emergency Care event on 4th October 2017.
