New report and podcast: Re-envisioning urgent and emergency care


Professor Suzanne Mason, Lead for our Urgent and Emergency Care theme in NIHR ARC Yorkshire and Humber, has led the production of a new report for the NHS Confederation. The report was produced following a number of interviews with key stakeholders. It outlines the current challenges faced by the emergency care system and suggests some solutions that should be considered in order to address existing demand and future proof the system.

You can listen to the latest NHS Confederation ‘Health on the Line’ Podcast episode where Prof Suzanne Mason introduces the report and discusses the challenges our emergency services are currently facing. Listen here:
