Operating Theatres: A Summary of Local Audit Findings

10 Mar 2016 - 12:01am

This report summarises the findings from our follow-up work, recognising that since the time of our audits, health boards have been working to address our local recommendations.

The main conclusion from the follow-up audit work is that many theatres remain under-utilised and there are barriers to improvement along the entire patient pathway, not just within theatres. The focus on theatre efficiency and productivity has waned in Wales in recent years although positively there has been greater focus on surgical safety.
