The National A&E Dashboard has been developed by NHS Improvement to provide a consolidated view of A&E information and can be shared between various central NHS bodies.
The dashboard provides a consistent understanding of A&E performance through the collection of daily situation report (SitRep) data, and enables the NHS to identify pressure points in the system and intervene accordingly.
Data is submitted by trusts on a daily basis for the previous 24 hours and snapshots of the data are taken at 8am. Trusts submit this data in the morning and submissions close in the afternoon for reporting purposes.
It takes the user through:
- how to access the A&E dashboard
- a quick overview and explanation of key functions
- details of each screen with screen shots
- descriptions about metrics
- easy navigation tips
- commonly asked questions
