This live stream seeks to provide an insight into the national urgent and emergency care strategy and to support participants to deliver improvements and initiatives, which can lead to improved patient care and performance through peer learning and case studies. 

We bring together national leaders and local teams to share and understand the national vision for urgent and emergency care. This will be a great opportunity to learn how to implement changes that may help to deliver the vision and improve patient care.
