Role of Emergency Medicine To gather information To direct this to someone who can do something with it, possibly with advice To develop redirection pathways
Story so far Information – Demographics of attendees – Analysis of attendance to identify possible redirection
Demographic stuff Stewart Cardwell’s analysis of Ayrshire attendances – 17-35 year olds make up 25.5% of workload – Of 79% are self presenters or 999 – Only 20% get admitted, 40% are discharged without review
Analysis Casenote review of 1733 patients, about 5- 10% of out of hours attendances should be primary care 2.5% attendances are psychiatric
Redirection pathways Currently: – Go to A&E For the future; – Back to relevant community based care
