Welcome to the National Early Warning Score calculation application, a joint development between the Royal College of Physicians (RCP) and the North West London Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Heath Research and Care (NWL CLAHRC).
This application is designed to aid in the calculation of NEWS scores for individual patients and to suggest the most appropriate clinical response as a factor of area of practice. It is not a diagnostic or patient management tool. By using this app you understand and accept that the RCP and NWL CLAHRC:
Accept no liability for the completeness or accuracy of the contents of this app.
Accept no liability for any inaccuracies or misleading statements or representations made by you, the user, when using or discussing the app with third parties.

Users should be aware that professionals in the field may have different opinions. Because of this fact and also because of regular advances in medical research, we strongly recommend that readers independently verify facts. Ultimately it is the user’s responsibility to make their own professional judgements.
A supporting e-learning resource to accompany the application is freely accessible at https://news.ocbmedia.com/. All users confirm that they have successfully completed this resource prior to using this application.
