With the Government expecting the NHS to deliver £22 billion in efficiency savings by 2020, operating theatres are experiencing a variety of challenges. The cap on agency staff spending introduced in February 2016 means that many operating theatres are struggling to maintain safe staffing levels. Performance data for over 5,000 surgeons has been released in a move toward greater transparency, but some feel that this will lead to additional stress for remaining staff. In addition to this, austerity measures have resulted in limited access to some technologies that could help drive efficiencies and improve outcomes.
Join us for the Operating Theatres Conference for exclusive insights from health experts on the following topics:
- Staffing – How can operating theatres maintain staff numbers and morale despite austerity measures and a growing skills shortage?
- Safety – What approaches can be made to restoring public confidence in operating theatre safety and maintain safe staffing levels?
