Reforming urgent and emergency care performance management – UK Department of Health – 17 December 2010

“In line with the Government’s commitment, outlined in Equity and excellence: liberating the NHS, to hold the NHS to account against clinically credible and evidence-based outcome measures, the Department of Health is developing some clinical quality indicators for urgent and emergency care.  They will be consistent with the NHS Outcomes Framework.  The first sets of clinical quality indicators, for A&E and ambulance services, were announced on 17 December 2010 and will start being used from April 2011.  In the meantime, existing standards and requirements remain in place.”
