A joint HCUK and BADS virtual conference

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.

As the healthcare industry faces a cost predicament, it is incumbent upon healthcare professionals to identify and reduce unnecessary practices without worsening patient outcomes. The majority patients would prefer to recover from their surgery in their home environment. This not only provides improved, comfort, sleep and catering but also reduces the risk of hospital acquired infections and VTE.

Gynaecology as a specialty has long been a front runner in reducing length of stay. However, there are only a few trusts nationally who routinely undertake laparoscopic hysterectomies and vaginal repairs on a day case basis. Chaired by Mary Stocker, Consultant Anaesthetist, Torbay and South Devon NHS Foundation Trust & Past President, The British Association of Day Surgery, this conference will hear from the teams at these trusts and learn how they implemented their day case pathways, the key to their success and how any obstacles were overcome.

In addition to moving procedures from the inpatient to the day surgery arena, there is also a national drive to undertake appropriate procedures within an outpatient setting and as such completely avoid the requirements for an operating theatre episode. Once again gynaecology teams have driven this change and we will hear how embracing outpatient surgery can transform your gynaecology service and the patient’s experience. 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 and nursing backgrounds.
