Operating Theatre Event

Effective Operating Theatre Summit

This year’s Effective Operating Theatre Summit comes at a critical time for any surgeons and theatre staff who are concerned about improving efficiency, quality, safety and the patient experience.

Faced with lengthening waiting times for non-urgent surgery, bed blocking, staff shortages and internal competition for theatre access by different surgical specialities, operating theatre efficiency and productivity remains a major challenge.


Despite this, it is vital that operating theatres function at their optimum level, not only to ensure the delivery of critical patient interventions, but also because they represent a significant overhead for every acute hospital.

By attending this summit, you will get an insight into the national context and developments in improving operating theatre efficiency and productivity.

The practical case studies and extended interactive sessions will help you gain an understanding of what optimum theatre usage looks like. You will also learn how to measure, monitor and improve operating theatre performance and look into developing your skills in effective team-working and leadership.

By self-assessing and reflecting on your own practice, you will be able to not only consider opportunities to enhance productivity, but also to improve the patient experience.

What’s more, the event offers you the opportunity to gain CPD accreditation points that will contribute to your professional development and revalidation evidence.

With the opportunity to network and share ideas with colleagues who are working to improve theatre performance, this summit promises a host of learning opportunities to help you get the very most from your operating theatre.
