star this property answer text <p>NHS Improvement is working closely with Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust to achieve delivery of the 95% four hour accident and emergency (A&amp;E) standard. Several steps are in place to support the Trust, including monthly oversight meetings between NHS Improvement’s senior leadership team and the Trust’s chief executive team to review performance; provision of NHS Improvement staff for on-site support to review long-stay patients and discharge those who are medically fit to be discharged; and work with mental health providers and the London Ambulance Service to support appropriate placement of mental health patients as well as improve patient handover performance. The Trust also received £500,000 of capital to develop and open a crisis café at the University Hospital Lewisham site, to help prevent avoidable mental health attendances at A&amp;E.</p><p>There are multiple actions underway to support reductions in waiting times for patients in London Emergency Departments.

It is for them to work with their staff, accredited local security management specialists, their local Police and Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) to put in place policies and procedures aimed at reducing the likelihood of abusive and violent conduct while ensuring appropriate action is taken, including criminal or administrative sanctions, against perpetrators deliberately committing such acts.</p><p> </p><p>The new NHS Violence Reduction Strategy developed by the NHS will help ambulance services tackle abusive and violent conduct against their staff. The Strategy includes training in de-escalation techniques, continuing professional development of security staff, improving the safety of working environments, ensuring all organisations are clear about their responsibilities, a publicity campaign and work with the Police and CPS to ensure appropriate use is made of existing legislation and the new Assault on Emergency Workers (Offences) Act 2018. In preparing the Strategy, there was an event with ambulance providers and work will start soon for a plan to tackle abusive and violent conduct against ambulance staff.</p><p> </p><p>Two ambulance services are assessing how body cameras could be used to help protect paramedics.
