Medical and pharmacological advances in surgery have contributed to the current and continued growth of day surgery. As the majority of adult UK elective surgery now takes place within day surgery facilities, these changes will inevitably have an impact upon nursing intervention. Past nursing practices may have to undergo a period of redevelopment in order to meet these changes and the logical first step towards any innovative change must involve acquiring the views of patients. The main themes to emerge related to nursing practice, information provision, experiences within day surgery and recovery at home. The overwhelming principle challenge was that of information provision followed closely by postoperative pain management.
