National Early Warning Scores (NEWS) – Survey ResultsNicola GreavesComments off.
In November 2017, all acute trusts in England were asked to complete a survey to establish the current use of National Early Warning Scores (NEWS) in acute settings. We would now like to share the national and local summary of the data.
There is clearly some potential to increase the use of NEWS and the information will feed in to the Patient Safety Collaborative national work stream for deterioration. We are keen to not only help trusts to implement NEWS, but to also help to increase the right response to the deterioration score. If you would like to discuss this further and help shape our deterioration work for 2018/19 please do contact us at firstname.lastname@example.orgPosted in: Quality Improvement
