Getting It Right First Time (GIRFT) is designed to improve the quality of care within the NHS by reducing unwarranted variations. By tackling variations in the way services are delivered across the NHS, and by sharing best practice between trusts, GIRFT identifies changes that will help improve care and patient outcomes, as well as delivering efficiencies such as the reduction of unnecessary procedures and cost savings.
Anaesthesia is the largest hospital speciality in the UK, involved in a third of all hospital admissions, while perioperative care covers a patient's care from when they first contemplate surgery to their full recovery.
The GIRFT national report for anaesthesia and perioperative medicine contains 18 recommendations based on information gathered from the 134 trusts in England with an anaesthesia and perioperative medicine service. It seeks to improve outcomes for patients having surgery in the new COVID-19 environment, including reducing the amount of time they spend in hospital.
