Introduction of a Primary Care Transfer Form incorporating the National Early Warning Score (NEWS)

Gloucestershire CCG supports the use of the National Early Warning Score (NEWS) as a tool to help establish a baseline of a patient’s condition and thus improve communication between services caring for a patient in an emergency situation.  This transfer form has been developed and has already been successfully used by some GPs in Gloucestershire.  The form is still in a pilot phase and we would welcome feedback.
