Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals NHS Trust: single clerking process


The single clerking process improves patient safety, avoids duplication of work, ensures our patients have earlier reviews by a senior doctor, enables effective team working and enhances the teaching of our doctors in training.

The single clerking project established at the Royal Sussex County Hospital in February 20016 in response to the increasing demands on the emergency department.  

Essentially it was a change in culture, it brings together all the speciality on-call doctors with A&E doctors as one acute floor team, with the ultimate goal to deliver efficient and excellent care, every time. It ensures that patients are treated equally, regardless of the mode of presentation and get to a senior decision maker at the earliest opportunity.
