Deputy Clinical Chair of NHS Gloucestershire Clinical Commissioning Group, Dr Hein Le Roux said:

“We are determined to provide the best possible advice, care and treatment for everyone who uses our services.

One Gloucestershire health and care partners are working more closely than ever before to ensure the journey in and out of hospital is as smooth as it can be.

A whole raft of measures have been put in place to improve access, help ensure people are able to leave hospital when safe to do so with ongoing care support if needed and improve ambulance handover arrangements.

It’s this spirit of partnership working that will ensure further improvements are made, acknowledging that many of the challenges facing urgent and emergency care can only be overcome by working together and are a shared responsibility.”
