Baseline clinical standards for seven day services in acute care

NHS England is working with the Department of Health, Monitor and the NHS Trust Development Authority to support the NHS to reduce the mortality gap by 2020.

As part of this, NHS acute trusts are being asked to provide information, by 4 September 2015, showing progress on the implementation of the seven day service clinical standards considered essential to eliminating variation in mortality. This information will help to identify areas for quality improvement. Results from the survey will be published nationally and provide a baseline against which progress will be measured on a quarterly basis.
