“COVID-19 will be around for the foreseeable future and infection rates may fluctuate as public health measures relax. A significant backlog of surgical work is being created in addition to those patients on waiting lists before the present crisis.” – Royal College of Surgeons
Current NHS waiting lists in England are the longest they have been since 2007, with modelling conducted by the IFS estimating that the number will reach 13 million by late 2022. A figure that has shocked Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, Sajid Javid as he comes to terms with this reality, stating in an interview “that it’s going to get a lot worse before it gets better”.
With many hospitals struggling under “black alert” levels, the pandemic has exacerbated many of the challenges long-faced by operating theatres professionals – ranging from maintaining wellbeing to monitoring rigorous safety standards.
Join us for our 7th Operating Theatre Conference where surgical leaders explain how Trusts can improve theatre productivity and what lessons have been learned from Covid-19. To what extent can innovation, technology and behavioural changes resolve many of the challenges we see today?
