Emergency care data set in same day emergency care


Recording same day emergency care via a consistent data set is an important part of improving urgent and emergency care services.

The data set will collate information on same day emergency care (SDEC) services and uptake, addressing the need to better understand how and why people use services. Having access to this data means we can improve planning and reduce pressure on the system, ultimately leading to better patient experience and outcomes. 

The emergency care data set (ECDS) was introduced in October 2017 to emergency departments. As part of the national SDEC model, the ECDS will be expanded to include SDEC services, and will enable a more comprehensive view of patient flow across the UEC system.
