A Joint British Association of Day Surgery & HCUK Virtual Conference

A wide range of breast procedures, including many oncoplastic surgeries, can be delivered as a day case with good clinical outcomes and patient experience. Despite these benefits, significant variation in day surgery performance persists nationally, usually, because of health professional and nursing misperceptions that such practice is unsafe or required service reconfiguration is too complicated.

The Covid-19 pandemic placed unprecedented strain on already stretched inpatient resource and the number of patients waiting for elective surgery now is at record levels, the highest in the history of the NHS. Day-case management is a safe, efficient pathway for delivering breast cancer surgery with good patient experience. Maximising day case rates is therefore a key component of the government’s Elective Recovery Plan and for breast services, will release valuable inpatient resource for people who require postoperative monitoring following complex reconstructive surgeries.

The aim of this one-day virtual conference, produced by the British Association of Day Surgery, is to provide an opportunity to share learning about successful day-case breast surgery and showcase what can be achieved, including key aspects of the day surgery pathway, current guidance and using data in its successful delivery.

100% of delegates at the last conference on this subject would recommend the conference to a colleague.

Join us to learn how this is achievable for our patients.
