Answer for Assessing A&E

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Written response from the Mayor I am assured by NHS England (London) that performance in A&E is looked at on a quarterly and annual basis. Analysis carried out by NHS England (London) has included data over several years.

As you'll be aware my Health Team has regular meetings with NHS England's London Regional Director, Anne Rainsberry, and will be asking for an update on progress in developing London's Urgent Care Boards and the data on which they are developing their local strategies.
