Identification and evaluation of senior-emergency physician led triage 

Senior doctor assessment for patients attending the emergency department offers rapid and expert review, potentially providing considerable benefits to patient safety and satisfaction. Although this practice is recommended by The Royal College of Emergency Medicine, there is a lack of robust evidence as to the effectiveness of this type of model. Building on the work undertaken in Yorkshire and Humber in collaboration with the AHSN Improvement Academy, this research aims to identify and evaluate  emergency departments in England that operate senior doctor triage and how interventions for improved patient flows may be developed in the future.
