NHS meeting on Brighton and Hove emergency care
11:40am Monday 15th July 2013 in News
Alternatives to using a hospital accident and emergency department have been highlighted at a public meeting today.
Health bosses are aiming to ease pressure on the Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton by raising awareness of services available from pharmacies, GP practices and the city’s walk-in centre.
The hospital came under fire from the Care Quality Commission and the Royal College of Nursing earlier this year after patients were left waiting for hours in A&E because of high demand and a shortage of available beds.
Performance has since improved but the hospital is still busy.
Brighton and Hove Clinical Commissioning Group has been asking people what improvements they want to see and what is working well at the moment to help it draw up future plans for emergency and urgent care in the city.
