Abstract: About 40% of the 10.3 million visits to NHS emergency departments in England in 2009/10 ended with the patient just needing advice and no actual treatment. It has previously been suggested that these needs could be met in the community through the delivery of urgent (or pre-hospital) care by Emergency Care Practitioners (ECP). A first research project (Smart Pods) was carried out with 6 NHS Trusts (acute, primary care and ambulance) with 125 staff and 88 patients to explore the technology requirements needed to support this new professional role.
