NHS England is moving to fully integrated urgent care services. Organisations will collaborate to deliver high quality clinical assessment, advice and treatment to shared standards and processes, with clear accountability and leadership. Central to this will be access to a wide range of clinicians; both experienced generalists and specialists. The service will offer advice to health professionals in the community, such as general practitioners, paramedics and emergency technicians, so that no decision needs to be taken in isolation.
The IUC ADC will be used to monitor the effectiveness of fully integrated urgent care services through the NHS 111 single entry point by collecting data from IUC service providers across England. It is intended to replace the existing NHS 111 Minimum Data Set once established and data will be published on the NHS England website when deemed to be of sufficient quality.
