The Northumbria Specialist Emergency Care hospital (NSECH) is the first dedicated emergency hospital in the UK and was developed as part of NHS England’s New Models of Care programme. The programme sought to pilot new ways of delivering NHS services with a view to scaling up what works locally into nationwide programmes, and developing a blueprint for the future of NHS care. Northumbria is at the forefront of NHS based ambulatory care and was involved in this programme.
