Since 2013, Cheltenham General Hospital’s accident and emergency (A&E) department has been a consultant-led service from 8am to 8pm and led by specialist emergency nurse practitioners overnight. This arrangement ensured the continuation of high quality care for patients in Gloucestershire. The current model was recently confirmed as part of the Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust’s public consultation on the reconfiguration of services.
