How is transforming the NHS theatre management

The NHS is facing unprecedented challenges in delivering high-quality care to its patients, especially in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. One of the key areas that needs improvement is the management of surgical procedures, which are often cancelled or delayed due to various reasons, such as patient no-shows, lack of preparation, or clinical decisions.

According to the NHS, 14.5% of all surgical procedures are cancelled on the day, and 50% of these cancellations are avoidable1. These cancellations not only cause frustration and inconvenience for the patients, but also waste valuable resources and increase the backlog of waiting lists.

This is where comes in. is a digital platform that aims to reduce the number of cancellations on the day of surgery by enabling patients, secretaries, and surgeons to communicate and coordinate more effectively. works by allowing patients to check in online three weeks before their procedure, and providing them with reminders and instructions on how to prepare for their surgery. This reduces the chances of patients forgetting or missing their appointments, and also allows them to cancel or reschedule their surgery if needed.

On the other hand, also allows secretaries to view and manage all their surgical lists in one easy-to-use dashboard, and to sort and filter them by various criteria, such as specialty, surgeon, or status. This helps them to keep track of the patients who have checked in, and to identify and fill any gaps or cancellations in the lists.

Finally, also allows surgeons to review and approve the patients who have checked in, and to make clinical decisions based on the latest and most accurate information. This helps them to avoid cancelling or rejecting patients on the day of the surgery, and to ensure that the patients are fit and ready for the procedure.

By using, hospitals and trusts can achieve a 50% reduction in avoidable cancellations, and a significant improvement in the efficiency and quality of their surgical services. has been designed hand-in-hand with one of the UK’s most respected trusts, UHNM, and has received positive feedback from the users who have tried it.
