REF:            2017-105

Subject:        Elective inpatient surgery scheduled

 

Request:

Could you please kindly supply me with the following for the periods of June 1 – August 31 2016 and November 1 2016 – January 31 2017:

  • The total number of hours of elective inpatient surgery scheduled
  • The number of hours of planned elective inpatient surgery that were cancelled due to a lack of capacity, beds or staff
  • The total number of hours of late starts to individual elective inpatient surgeries due to a lack of capacity, beds or staff, and the range of delayed starts for each period
  • The total number of hours of turnaround time between elective inpatient surgeries, and the range of turnaround times for each period

For additional clarity, by “elective inpatient surgery” I mean for this to exclude information relating to day and emergency surgeries. By “turnaround time” I mean the time between elective inpatient surgeries taking place in the same theatre on the same day.

I would also appreciate it if you could inform me of the total number of theatres the trust has, and what each of these theatres are designated to be used for (elective, day, emergency etc).

The section of the request relating to range is not able to be done as the date from ORMIS that would produce this is unvalidated and as such the min and max that would make the range is not correct.

 

Please find information attached.
