Day surgery is now provided for an increasing range of procedures, in patients ranging from the very fit to the
rather frail. It has become the standard of care for many elective surgery procedures and should be the default option for all 200 procedures within the BADS Directory of Procedures.

The day will recount the 10 year journey with Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust from when they
introduced an enhanced recovery programme for hip and knee arthroplasty which has seen their length of stay
reduce to same day discharge for some patients, and a mean of 2.5 days for all NHS patients.

Enhanced recovery programmes aim to improve patients’ experience of care and expedite recovery from elective surgical procedures in the shortest possible time, without compromising safety. The quality of the programme is measured by its safety (complications), clinical effectiveness (outcomes) and patient experience. The cost efficiency of the program can be objectively measured by patient’s length of hospital stay and readmission rates to the hospital.

We will hear about their dedicated ring fence policy as suggested in the Get It Right First Time report, which is in line with the latest guidance from the British Orthopaedic Association. Surgical procedures have been standardised as much as possible so that the whole process is predictably reproducible, familiar to the staff for all 2700 primary joint replacements, and has allowed a planned reduction in orthopaedic beds. This process results in better preparation for surgery and reduce surgical stress and blood loss. Patient preparation, education and counselling is carried out throughout the care process in a multidisciplinary coordinated approach. Feedback is key and occurs at team and clinician level for multiple steps in the pathway for safety, clinical effectiveness and patient experience.

We shall also hear from other centres who have successfully introduced day case hip and knee replacement
pathways.

There will be an opportunity for discussion with the speakers, experts from BADS and participants from across the UK which will be of interest to those with medical, nursing and managerial backgrounds.
