A Joint British Association of Day Surgery & HCUK Virtual Conference
Elective recovery still remains a significant focus of the NHS. Although progress has been made on long waits, waiting list numbers remain at record highs and in response The Elective Recovery Taskforce has been set up to help tackle this further. It is clear we must work differently to respond to these unprecedented waits and Day Case surgery offers us a way to help increase efficiencies and make an impact on these waiting times.
Join us to see how units across the UK have been leading the journey to successful Day case arthroplasty. It has been proven to be safe, achievable and has been replicated across several trusts. Learn how to embark on your day case journey and also see how Elective hubs can increase day case numbers further. You will also see how digital technology can aid this and move us towards a more virtual way of working
Increasing the delivery of day case total joints across the NHS is achievable and it is important to share learning so that day case arthroplasty becomes the normal in units across the UK.
