National Day Surgery Delivery Pack Webinar

In September 2020, GIRFT, BADS and CPOC jointly held a webinar to share the publication of the delivery pack, supporting trusts to maximise the opportunities contained within it. You can read more about the webinar here.

Regional day surgery webinars

Since the original national webinar, we have also held a number of regionally focused webinars. The full webinars and any associated documents or links can be found below.

On 27th April 2021, we held a North West day surgery webinar, with a range of speakers from GIRFT and from local trusts. You can watch the whole webinar below.

During the webinar, there was a video from Professor Tim Board, orthopaedic consultant at Wrightington, Wigan and Leigh Teaching Hospitals NHS FT, on day case total hip replacement. We have received some requests for the video, therefore it can be viewed below in its entirety.

On 13th July 2021, we held a south east regional day surgery webinar, with a broad range of speakers. You can see the webinar in it’s entirety below. The presentations from the webinar are also available to download underneath the video.
