Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board Operating Theatres Report 2012

23 Nov 2012 - 8:59am

Operating theatre services are an essential part of patient care. It is in the interest of patients and NHS organisations to ensure that operating theatre resources are used to best effect so that they are cost effective, support the achievement of waiting time targets and contribute to positive patient experience.

The Health Board has rightly focused significant efforts in putting in place the groundwork for improvements across theatre services. However, the impacts on performance have been disappointing so far and the Health Board should give priority to tackling some key, remaining barriers.
