National Early Warning Score 2 - NEWS2

19 Dec 2017 17:14 | Anonymous member (Administrator)

The awaited version 2 of the National Early Warning Score has been released today. 

The Royal College of Physicians has updated its National Early Warning Score (NEWS), first produced in 2012. NEWS2 has now received formal endorsement from NHS England (NHSE) and NHS Improvement (NHSI) to become the early warning system for identifying acutely ill patients, including those with sepsis, in hospitals in England. 

NHS England and NHS Improvement have endorsed a single early warning score – the National Early Warning Score (NEWS) – for use in acute and ambulance settings.
