Answered By:

As outlined previously, following my correspondence with the hospital trusts, officers are meeting with individual trusts to bring them on board. This approach has proved positive and there has been a significant increase in the number of Emergency Departments (EDs) sharing data across London, with approximately two thirds (19) of EDs sharing by September 2015.

Officers are working hard to sign up the remaining 10 trusts and NHS England is actively supporting this drive. A successful Summit took place on the 15 January and there is a conference planned for 9th March. Please see below the intended timescales MOPAC is working towards.

In addition to the 10 listed EDs, we also plan to engage with Moorfields Eye Hospital and Watford General (which sits outside London), to ensure we have full geographic coverage.
