We agree which is why we are pushing for change in input & flow out. Options for complex pts with urgent needs from their own teams to have access to advice, restructured bed management so pts move out of the ED when our part in their journey done. Focus not just input

One of several attempts around the country to shift the dial a bit and use alternatives to EDs. Slightly different methods and slightly different time scales for starting. We have to get on with trying something before winter/ second wave. Safety net of patient not system!

We’ve helped look after you but please help look after us and each other. If you’re out enjoying a drink this weekend then eat, stay hydrated and keep a safe distance from others. So do have fun but please don't drink so much you need help from us or our friends

Sort of sad we really think we need to plan for the risk that emergency services will have deal with increased violence and aggression due to alcohol. Never right that we have this but especially wrong while coronavirus still a threat. Have a good time but don’t over do it!

We signed this recognising hindsight easy but convinced that planning for a second wave will be helped by transparent discussion.

Emergency Department crowding has been and is an international problem. IFEM gives voice to an EM community deeply concerned about the effect of crowding on our patients and staff. And then came Covid... join the webinar 30th June or 2nd July

Agree. Need to work on both ends of the journey. Our position statement equally clear about flow through and no corridor care

Emergency departments are the safety net of the acute ill and acutely injured as well as for the vulnerable. As we reset in the NHS we must be careful what we do results in less inequalities & not more

The impact of Covid is felt most in deprived communities. The most deprived 10% use A&E twice as much as the less deprived 10%. We must use the spotlight of Covid to address health inequalities - including access to care.

We need to deliver a safe service to vulnerable patients who need Emergency care. A crowded department and corridor care is unthinkable. We will need winter, Covid and flu planning while trying to get all our services going again
