Advice on proposals for elective orthopaedic inpatient care in south east London

The Senate was asked to provide advice on proposals to consolidate elective orthopaedic inpatient care in South East London – a stage 2 assurance review. The Senate provided advice on 3 issues, 1) whether the case for change and proposed model of care have a clear evidence base 2) whether the proposed model of care would be clinically safe, whilst maintaining a robust system of trauma care and care for patients with complex needs and 3) the potential of the proposed model to improve the quality of elective orthopaedic care.
