Welsh Emergency Department Frequent Attenders Network Event

A national event looking at frequent attenders to health care facilities – namely, A&E, GP Out Of Hours, GP practices and Welsh Ambulance Service.

They recognise that frequent attenders have many drivers for their attendances, and lots of them have complex histories including trauma, isolation, insecure housing, adverse childhood experiences, poverty and so on. Ongoing work has shown the significant positive outcome of having 3rd sector, voluntary organisations, community groups and charities involved in the solutions, by helping embed frequent attenders back into their local community. they would like to see this replicated across Wales with the Frequent Attender Services being set up in each health board area.

They are launching their national programme, which is based on successful multi-agency work with these patients across the full spectrum of agencies and are just over 2 weeks away from their national event in Cardiff on 26th April. The event is free to attend and will be an opportunity to work within geographical areas, making new professional relationships across health, other public sector agencies, and a whole range of supporting agencies
