Accident and Emergency - how are we doing?


Ambulance at Royal Lancaster Infirmary Emergency DepartmentAccident and Emergency provisional quality indicators

A new report sets out data coverage, data quality and performance information for the following five Accident and Emergency (A&E) indicators:

  1. Left department before being seen for treatment rate
  2. Re-attendance rate
  3. Time to initial assessment
  4. Time to treatment
  5. Total time in A&E

Publishing these data will help share information on the quality of care of A&E services, to stimulate the discussion and debate between patients, clinicians, providers and commissioners, which is needed in a culture of continuous improvement.

You can also find out more information from the Department of Health website.
