star this property answer text Not all patients who attend accident and emergency departments are admitted into hospital and require a bed. In 2013-14, 24% of 21.8 million accident and emergency attendances resulted in an emergency admission. Information is collected every quarter on bed availability and occupancy, including general and acute beds. In 2013-14 there were, on average, 135,964 general and acute beds open overnight, of which 88.0% were occupied. Information is collected every month on critical care bed availability and occupancy. In 2013-14 there were, on average, 4,274 adult and paediatric critical care beds, of which 82.9% were occupied. This information does not separately identify bed availability or occupancy for patients admitted via accident and emergency or any other admission method. more like this

star this property answer text <p>National Health Service accident and emergency (A&amp;E) departments are measured against a standard that at least 95% of patients should be admitted, transferred or discharged within four hours of arrival. The standard applies to all types of (A&amp;E) departments, including major (A&amp;E) departments, minor injury units, and walk-in centres.</p><p> </p><p>This standard was met in all four quarters and for the whole of 2013-14, with performance at 95.7% for the year. It has been met for the first quarter (April to June) of 2014-15, with performance at 95.1%.</p><p> </p><p>There were 21.8 million attendances at (A&amp;E) departments in 2013-14 compared to 20.5 million in 2009-10, and in the face of rising demand not all patients are receiving care within the standard. NHS England, the NHS Trust Development Authority and Monitor are working with the most challenged providers and commissioners. £400 million has been made available this year to ensure local urgent and emergency care services are sustainable and prepared for winter.</p><p> </p>

In the guidance, commissioners are reminded that where any changes are proposed to urgent and emergency care services they need to provide analysis of travelling times and distances, identifying the impact on pedestrians and public and private transport users, as well as the ambulance service where relevant.</p> more like this

These include extending opening hours for general practice, a £3.8 billion Better Care fund for the National Health Service and local authorities to invest in joined up health and social services from April 2015, the NHS 111 service signposting people to primary and community settings where appropriate, the ambulance service resolving more calls without taking people to accident and emergency departments, and increasing accident and emergency workforce capacity. In the longer term, a review of urgent and emergency care services is looking at the way the NHS responds to and receives emergency patients to hospital, to ensure a sustainable system for the future.</p><p> </p>
