The Operating Theatres Conference

“Everyone in the NHS will be pulling out all the stops to make sure all patients get their surgery as quickly as possible.” – NHS England

An October 2017 report by NHS Improvement found that two hours of surgery are being lost every day due to poor scheduling. It estimated that NHS hospitals could perform an additional 280,000 routine operations a year through better planning and organisation. In May 2016, official NHS statistics revealed more than 74,000 last minute cancellations of hospital operations in England, the highest in 15 years. Staff shortages, pressure on A&E departments and a lack of available social care for discharged patients are thought to be the main causes. The vote to leave the European Union has also raised concerns about potential recruitment problems. Meanwhile, new technologies such as 3D printing and surgical robotics look set to change the way doctors operate.

Join us at The Operating Theatres Conference where leading experts will discuss the future of surgery in the NHS. Topics will include the newest innovations in surgical technologies, the implications of the latest Government health policies and the role the private sector can play in addressing staff shortages.
