In a nutshell: Early Warning Scoring tools have been in place in Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust for over five years but compliance has been low. A service improvement project commenced across all admission wards in 2013. Prior to the project, only one out of five clinical care targets set were achieved. An established framework for service improvement was used to guide delivery.

The first 12 months of the project has seen benefits in patient care and staff experience.
