Review of screening rates by ED Frailty Lead and Frailty Interface team.

A comparison of CFS scores for 10 consecutive patient per day during June 2020 by the two different teams to assess variance. Education intervention carried out to improve accuracy of recording.


Screening rates were significantly improved within the ED Department from 60% to 80%, however there is room for improvement in improving the reliability of the CFS identification.
