End of Shift trial update

Blurred ambulance

It has come to our attention that there has been some confusion around the End of Shift trial.

This update is to confirm: -

  • The trial is still live and running in Norfolk & Waveney and Hertfordshire & West Essex.
  • The trial was paused on six occasions between the 6th & 12th September where the Trust declared Surge White (Internal Critical Incident).  
  • On each of these occasions the trial resumed immediately when the Trust de-escalated back to Surge Black. 
  • The plans to expand the trial previously announce on Need to Know are still on schedule to take place.
  • At Surge Black the Strategic Commander will have the discretion to deploy resources outside of the trial guidelines, but this should only be in exceptional circumstances.
  • Should the Trust declare an Internal Critical Incident then the trial will be temporarily paused.

The team are continually updating their Frequently Asked Questions page, but if you have any further questions or feedback please email eostrial@eastamb.nhs.uk.
