The Scottish Patient Safety Programme is encouraging the use of the National Early Warning Score across Scotland.
NEWS is an evidence based tool to support recognition and response of acute physiological deterioration which is recommended by the Royal College of Physicians.
To support the roll out of NEWS, SPSP has developed a number of resources to help NHS boards. You can order :
• Cards with the NEWS chart which attaches to lanyards
• World Sepsis Day 2016 - statement page
• Sepsis Handy Guides
Don’t forget to download the NEWS & Sepsis App on either the Apple Store or on Google Play for Android devices.
To order any of the resources please email the team with your request detailing the quantity of the items you would like and where they should be delivered to.
