Abstract

An increase in day surgery activity to 75 per cent of all elective surgery is a central feature of the NHS Plan (DoH 2000). However, patient information provision remains a challenge for all modern surgery as the time spent in hospital is brief and the level of self-care has grown. Effective information provision and an increased emphasis on psychological care are therefore essential to the future of day surgery.
