Integrated Urgent Care (IUC)

The RCP's Health Informatics Unit is working on behalf of the Professional Record Standards Body (PRSB) to carry out the Integrated Urgent Care (IUC) project in order to define information recording and sharing requirements of integrated urgent care services.

What we are doing

This project is a scoping review to define information requirements of integrated urgent care (IUC) services as a precursor to further work to develop standards for clinical information to support IUC services. It aims to standardise the information available to and recorded by IUC services, as well as the information that they communicate with other providers, following the development by NHS England of a new national service specification for the provision of an integrated 24/7 urgent care access, clinical advice and treatment service.

Consultation workshop

In partnership with the PRSB, the RCP is hosting a scoping review on Monday 4 June 2018 to identify the types of information that need to be recorded by integrated urgent care services and communicated along the patient journey in a usable form.

The purpose of this workshop is for patients, health and care professionals and industry to contribute to the proposed IUC information requirements. Your participation will help the HIU to make recommendations about how detailed standards should be developed and implemented to support the patient journey.
