3 ‘‘Patients who are admitted to hospital believe that they are entering a place of safety, where they, their families and carers, have a right to believe that they will receive the best possible care’’. ‘‘Yet there is evidence to the contrary. Patients who are unwell, or become acutely unwell in hospital, may receive suboptimal care’’ Dr Mary Armitage, Guideline Development Group Chair Acutely ill patients in hospital Royal College of Physicians Delivering NHS Services, Seven Days a Week

31 Thank you

32 The whole health community needs to address the problem of increased mortality over the weekend Engaged clinicians (medical,nursing,physio,OT) and managers Developed leadership: Divisional Director & 4 Clinical Directors Involved everyone: Martin Farrier’s weekly mortality data: There should be a 7 day access to all aspects of care: medical, nursing, diagnostics, GPs, Social services, Palliative care COE Consultants in the community – supporting GPs Engaged Nursing / Care homes – advanced care planning Improved end-of-life care for terminally ill patients – rapid discharge Is there a solution?Wigan experience Why are there more deaths? ‘Weekend Effect’

33 Increased Consultant presence: Cost effective / Reduces mortality Recruited more A&E and MAU consultants Increased presence of Consultants on A&E, MAU and Medical wards on weekends and bank holidays 7 day 12 hour consultant delivered/presence service Is there a solution? Wigan experience Why are there more deaths? ‘Weekend Effect’ Right patient Right ward, beyond the first 24 hours of admission Specialists felt engaged, valued & comfortable in managing patients Increased daily senior review on medical wards Improved patient pathway / journey / care bundles

34 Support services will also need to adopt 7 day working practice if the full benefits of 7 day Consultant service are to be realised Increased presence of Physio, OT and Social services over weekends and bank holidays Increased availability of diagnostics over weekends and bank holidays Is there a solution? Wigan experience Why are there more deaths? ‘Weekend Effect’
