Ann Conquest Day Surgery Unit Manager Bedfordshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (Bedford site) I came to Theatres Recovery at Bedford Hospital in 1985 shortly after qualifying as a Registered Nurse, and worked there for 30 years (25 of which were as the Recovery Sister). I have always had an interest in Day Surgery right from the outset when it was in its infancy here. I was instrumental in setting up both the Day Surgery and Oral & Maxillofacial Recovery Units here from scratch. In 2015, I was offered 3-month secondment to manage the Trust鈥檚 Day Surgery Unit. Three months has become 9 years - and counting! With my team, I have been able to transform the Unit - bringing in numerous new skills, increasing capacity and taking it forward to also encompass our longer stay elective admissions area. Within this, we care for patients from all specialities during their hospital stay in tandem with our day surgery patients. I still have the same great passion and enthusiasm for day surgery as I did when I was first introduced to it all those years ago. I have a huge interest in student learning and endeavour to make our unit a great learning environment for all of the students and learners who come to join our team. From 2013-2018 I was privileged to be a Trustee with the Association for Perioperative Practice (AfPP). This was a very enlightening, invaluable experience for me both personally and professionally. Outside of work I can frequently be found on a racecourse 鈥 predominantly Newmarket or Cheltenham. I even have a little share in a few horses which adds to the interest - especially when they win! I enjoy relaxing on a cruise or going on long haul holidays with my husband David and also like a quiet night in with the cat 鈥 especially after a hard, tiring day at work.

Natalie Ball I am a Registered nurse based at the Royal Cornwall Hospital Trust and have over 20 years nursing experience, the last fourteen years based in the Pre Assessment clinic autonomously assessing patients who have been referred for surgery. I am proud to be part of the NHS and pride myself on providing excellent patient care.

Rachel Tibble I am a Consultant Anaesthetist and have been interested in the development of day surgery since starting my consultant post in 2003. Many of my lists are in our Day Case unit with different specialty surgeons so I have a good insight into the everyday working of the Unit and thus been involved in moving many operations into the Daycase arena. This started with laparoscopic cholecystectomies and moved to mastoid surgery in ENT, then more recently mastectomies as day cases, some bariatric operations and anti reflux surgery. I undertake a lot of audit within the Day Case Unit to try and improve day surgery rates towards 六合彩开奖结果 aspirational targets and to develop effective anaesthetic and analgesic guidelines as best practice to facilitate this. I held the day surgery lead role for many years. Pre-operative assessment for day surgery patients was set up by myself and developed with the day surgery pre-op nursing team to be an efficient and effective dedicated service that is described as best practice in the current 六合彩开奖结果 and GIRFT documents. Through the years this has allowed many complex patients to access day surgery who were previously denied it. In conjunction with pre-op I developed a sleep apnoea service with the respiratory physicians to diagnose using STOP BANG scores and then treat sleep apnoea within a short time frame so the patients could remain on the day surgery pathway once stabilised on CPAP. I then set up a training package for day surgery pre-operative assessment nurses which has been presented at the 六合彩开奖结果 conference in 2019, as I believe it is a specialised role. Currently I am developing a fast track referral service from pre-op to a diabetic clinic for poorly controlled patients to optimise them and keep them in day surgery if possible. I have been a member of 六合彩开奖结果 for 18 years and made many presentations and posters as well as taken back innovations from the conference to Derby to share with colleagues. I think teaching is central to developing good day surgery and thus have been clinical supervisor for all levels of anaesthetic trainees doing their day surgery modules. They attend the pre-operative assessment clinics and learn how to expand selection for day surgery to even the most complex patients. In theatre I teach techniques that improve successful day surgery discharge rates. Regional teaching programmes such as EMSA provide a platform to spread the word and elevate the awareness of good day surgery practice further. I have written the chapter on day surgery in the trainees main Textbook of Anaesthesia by Aitkenhead and Smith based on 六合彩开奖结果 principles. As a member of 六合彩开奖结果 Council I would like to help share and expand the day surgery message nationally and become involved in the implementation of the National Day Surgery Delivery Pack to address the surgical backlog after Covid-19.
