Integrated Urgent Care (IUC)

What we are doing

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.

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 workshops

On 4 June 2018, in partnership with the PRSB, the RCP hosted a successful scoping review consultation workshop with patients, healthcare professionals and industry representatives. If you wish to be involved with future workshops, please let us know by contacting informatics@rcplondon.ac.uk.
