NHS pressures in NW and across Surrey Heartlands - please read and support

06 Dec, 2018

It’s that time of year where the NHS is under significant pressure in terms of capacity and flow within the North West Surrey System in which we have already raised to the second highest escalation level. These pressures are being seen across both Surrey heartlands and the South region with our ambulance provider also escalating to their highest level at times of surge.

Therefore through winter we need your help as system partners, if you are referred by any patients from either the acute hospital or community hospital, please can you support us by ensuring you accept the referrals as soon as possible to ensure flow through our beds. Equally if any of your residents are inpatients please can you facilitate their discharge back home with you as soon as possible so as not to create any further delay.

Many thanks for your support, please do let me know if you require any further information. Equally, if there are any specific challenges or pressures being experienced in any of our care homes, please do contact me on either my mobile or by email.

Interim Head of Urgent and Integrated Care
