DH reveals extra cash allocations to ease A&E pressure

  • Comment

The government has today announced around half of promised additional funding allocations for hospital trusts, which it says will ease pressure on accident and emergency departments in England next winter.

The Department of Health has announced the allocation of £55.98m of the £100m A&E capital funding, outlined in the spring budget by the chancellor, to ease pressure in time for next winter.

The funding awarded at this stage is being allocated to 70 NHS hospitals, said the DH.

It is intended to be used to meet the 95% standard of admitting, transferring, or discharging patients within four hours by ensuring patients are treated in the most appropriate setting.

Plans outlined by trusts for spending the money include primary care streaming and co-locating GP practices within A&E departments to ensure patients are treated in the most appropriate setting.

The investment is one part of the A&E plan being implemented across the NHS this year to get performance to 95% during 2018, noted the DH.
