Restart of Elective Surgery after a Pandemic (COVID-19)

During the COVID-19 Pandemic (2020) all elective surgery was suspended in response to the impending pandemic and uncertainty it may have on the National Health Service in the UK. Some theatre staff were redeployed where needed to provide COVID-19 provision in case of staffing shortages, and essential equipment, resources such as ventilators were reallocated to HDU and ITU areas to manage COVID-19 surge capacity.

At AfPP we have produced guidance on how to restart elective surgery following COVID-19. This guidance can be accessed below.
