Establishing a £2.4m threatre efficiency programme

The aim was to establish, implement and deliver a significant £2.4M theatre efficiency programme in Trauma and Orthopaedics (T&O). This would be achieved through improving ‘in-session’ efficiencies, increasing case-mix and changing individual surgeon list templates.

Given the Trust’s challenging financial position and significant variance of T&O performance to 2015/16 financial plan, this programme was needed to give them the necessary tools to get back on track. Ensuring savings identified in T&O theatres was a real priority.
