Description:
The National Clinical Programme in Surgery is delighted to publish the Acute Surgery Model of Care. The aim of the Surgery Programme is to provide a framework for the delivery of more timely, accessible, safer, cost effective and efficient care for the acute surgical patient. This follows on from the Elective Surgery Model of Care which is currently being rolled out across Ireland. While understanding the difficulties facing healthcare delivery at the present time, we believe that the principles laid out in this document represent best practice that will, in the long term, fundamentally improve surgical care. Change of this magnitude will clearly take time to implement and will impact all care providers and the organisations within which they work. We also acknowledge that the patient care that is provided by surgeons and anaesthetists cannot be delivered without the support of a wide range of other professional and ancillary groups. Finally, we welcome the collaboration with the other programmes charged with the delivery of acute patient care. This final document could not have been completed without the widespread input and suggestions that we have received from our own team, the surgical and healthcare community as well as patients themselves. We would like to express our sincere gratitude and appreciation to one and all.
