Description:
This report provides analysis and commentary on day surgery as performed in publicly funded acute hospitals in the Eastern Region from 1994 to 2000 inclusive. Twenty-one specific procedures were selected for analysis on the basis that they:- were considered by surgeons to be clinically appropriate; cover the main specialties; account for approximately 40% of all surgical procedures in these specialities; are of sufficient complexity to make it unusual for them to be carried out in an OPD. Each section of the report has a different focus. Section 1. looks at regional day case rates for the full range of procedures in 2000 and compares them with their 1994 equivalents as well as with recent UK rates. Section 2. focuses on individual hospitals and presents activity levels per procedure for each of the years 1994 to 2000 inclusive. Section 3. provides detailed commentaries on four procedures i.e. inguinal hernia repair, excision of breast lump, cystoscopy and cataract extraction. These procedures were selected for a variety of reasons e.g. hospital variations within the region, rates well below the UK average, time trends etc. Section 4 focuses on each procedure and provides a hospital breakdown for the years 1999 and 2000. Where appropriate, short commentaries are provided.
