Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust was included in the Emergency Care Improvement Programme (ECIP) in October 2017. Since then, ECIP have undertaken a range of actions with the Trust including:

- A gap analysis to improve patient flow with a written report including recommendations;

- Identification of five key areas for improvement, supported by ECIP;

- A specific mental health review, as identified through the initial gap analysis; and

- The support of an ECIP improvement manager for two days each week.

Support in these areas is expected to be provided throughout winter 2017-18.
