NHS Services open seven days a week: Every day counts

16 November 2013 - NHS Improving Quality


This publication offers case studies and examples of how hospitals, community health and social care services across the country are working together to deliver routine services seven days a week. Recent listening events have shown that patients and the public want us to act now to make seven day services a reality in our NHS.

NHS Improving Quality (NHS IQ) will support the Seven Day Service Forum and NHS England with this through its Seven Day Services Improvement Programme. The aim of the programme is to ensure that there is equity in care for patients regardless of the day of the week, through the rapid spread of new models of seven day services.
