The delivery of seven day services across England
is a priority for NHS England and the NHS
Improving Quality (NHS IQ) partnership.
NHS IQ is supporting this priority through the
development of a three to five year, Seven Day
Services Improvement Programme aimed at
ensuring equity in care for patients regardless of
the day of the week, through supporting the
spread of new models of seven day services
across the NHS at scale and pace.
This will be a key improvement for the 21st
century, and the NHS could potentially lead
the world in its ambition to provide equality of
access to high quality and safe healthcare seven
days a week.
