A new ‘hysterectomy hub’ set up by the Getting It Right First Time (GIRFT) programme is now available to support NHS providers to carry out more hysterectomy operations as day surgery.
The latest addition to the hub is GIRFT’s Best practice day case hysterectomy delivery guide, which is co-badged by the British Association of Day Surgery (BADS) and Royal College of Anaesthetists (RCoA), and supported by the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCoG).
The guidance draws on the learning of teams who are successfully delivering a day case hysterectomy pathway – sharing details of their processes, outlining potential steps, and offering practical guidance and advice for those trust who wish to increase their own rates.
It is accompanied by a range of appendices and resources – including example trust documents, clinical protocols and patient information – all gathered together for convenience in the hysterectomy hub.
