    To make the best of this approach we need to make sure patients and all health care professionals including GPs and multidisciplinary hospital teams work together to: Identify anaemia early in the pathway. Make the patient aware of this and all actions going forward. Find the cause of the anaemia. Use tried and tested treatments for anaemia before surgery. This could include advice on changes in diet, oral treatments such as iron supplements and the use intravenous iron when necessary. Make sure the patient has a personalised treatment programme including provid

    Roy Cairns, 58, was diagnosed with liver cancer in 2019. Twelve months later a tumour was found on his lung. Mr Cairns said taking part in the cancer prehab programme piloted by the Northern Ireland's South Eastern Health Trust after his second diagnosis was a "win-win", not only for himself but also his surgeons. "I think when you get that diagnosis you are left floundering and with prehab the support you get gives you focus and a little bit of control back in your life," he said. Prehabilitation (prehab) means getting ready for cancer treatm

    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.

    The Green Paper project is a nine-month programme of consultation and research about how to advance the perioperative care agenda. It aims to draw CPOC’s diverse community of partners together around a shared set of priorities for change and a vision for the future. The project will draw on a wide evidence base, building on work already happening within CPOC, our partner organisations and across the entire health and care sector. We will also reach out to our community of thousands of health professionals and patients to generate new evidence that will enable us to develop future policy

    A significant backlog of elective surgical cases has built up during the COVID-19 crisis. The freeze on elective surgery has produced a waiting list that may take years to clear. In the US, the CDC has issued guidelines that "facilities should establish a prioritization policy committee consisting of surgery, anesthesia and nursing leadership to develop a prioritization strategy appropriate to the immediate patient needs". According to the CDC, this committee should work around 'objective priority scoring'. The MeNTS (Medically-Necessary, Time-Sensitive Procedures) instrument is a

In the COVID-era, multidisciplinary perioperative teams can be at the front and centre of supporting staff to deliver the best possible care.

    Patients who receive good perioperative care can have fewer complications after surgery, shorter hospital stays, and quicker recovery times, shows a large review of research. The Centre for Perioperative Care, a partnership between the Royal College of Anaesthetists, other medical and nursing royal colleges, and NHS England, reviewed 27 382 articles published between 2000 and 2020 to understand the evidence about perioperative care, eventually focusing on 348 suitable studies. An estimated 10 million or so people have surgery in the NHS in the UK each year, with elective surgery cost
