HiSLAC National Survey Launches Today
On Thursday June 16th, all consultants and associate specialists will be asked to complete the third annual HiSLAC survey - a short anonymised questionnaire to contribute to a nationwide ‘snapshot’ of specialist intensity and 7-day services.
The HiSLAC (High-Intensity Specialist Led Acute Care) study aims to determine whether having more specialists in hospitals at weekends will improve outcomes for patients admitted as medical emergencies. Since the survey began, in 2014, researchers have gathered evidence from more than 28,000 NHS staff and 80 per cent of acute Trusts in England.
Data from the first survey was recently published in the Lancet.
The web-based questionnaire takes just two minutes to complete and will be distributed within Trusts by HiSLAC local project leads. More information is available by clicking here.
