Since its launch in September 2009, The Productive Operating Theatre programme, developed by the NHS Institute for Innovation and Improvement, has been playing a fundamental role in helping theatre teams to work more effectively together to improve the quality of patient experience, the safety and outcomes of surgical services and the effective use of theatre time.

The Royal College of Surgeons and the NHS Institute for Innovation and Improvement, have come together to hold a joint seminar that will highlight the important role surgeons and anaesthetists continue to play with The Productive Operating Theatre programme.  It will highlight how, as the NHS enters a critical time, surgeons and anaesthetists can embrace the programme and be at the forefront of quality improvements and can make a real difference for patients and staff.

Who is the event for?*
This event is for surgeons and anaesthetists who are currently implementing The Productive Operating Theatre programme in their organisations as well as those who are yet to embark on it.  To get the most benefit from the event we recommend that a minimum of one surgeon and one anaesthetist attend together from each organisation.
