NHS CMR opinion

“Surgeons at my hospital, and all over the country, are crying out for robots.”

At East and North Hertfordshire NHS Trust, using robotic surgery in gynaecology has on average reduced the length of stay by two days per patient. In urology, post-surgical use of intensive care beds has decreased.

With figures released by the NHS last week showed that people waiting for planned treatment rose to 7.2 million at the end of December, with over 406,000 waiting over a year – the need to service reduce backlogs, free up beds and reduce health inequalities across England is more prevalent than ever.
