The British Association of Day Surgery are pleased to announce this virtual conference focusing on Day Case Total Hip Replacements

Never before has day case surgery been as important to our patients as it now as we embark on our recovery from Covid-19. We have seen a huge rise in the number of patients waiting for orthopaedic surgery with > 0.5 million now on the waiting list. This is the highest it has been for a decade and nearly 70,000 have been waiting over a year. The bulk of these long waiters are Arthroplasty cases. Inpatient Covid and Emergency Care pressures are set to stay and we must move away from using Inpatient estate towards Day case Ambulatory pathways.

With increasing pressure on the NHS, the drive to reduce length of stay and deliver as much activity as possible on a day case basis is a key national priority. Day Case major joint replacement surgery is now routine practice in a number of units across the UK. However, there remains huge variation in day case arthroplasty surgery across the country. Come and learn how they did it, the obstacles they overcame and take the opportunity to transform your orthopaedic services.
