Eight trusts win place on elective recovery project

Eight trusts have been awarded roles trialling a new accreditation scheme for surgical hubs as part of an NHS England pilot that will run until March.

The creation of up to 140 surgical hubs, sites which are ring-fenced for surgical work only, is a key plank of the NHS England and government elective recovery plan for addressing the backlog.

The full benefits are still being finalised but accredited trusts will likely get better access to additional recovery funding and central support from the Getting It Right First Time team.

The hubs will focus mainly on providing high volume, low complexity surgery, as previously recommended by the Royal College of Surgeons of England, with particular emphasis on ophthalmology, general surgery, trauma and orthopaedics (including spinal surgery), gynaecology, ear nose and throat, and urology.
