貝爾法斯特信託基金:醫院的目標是恢復骨科手術

這些中心將設在貝爾法斯特信託的馬斯格雷夫公園醫院以及南部和西部信託。

骨科手術恢復委員會的成立是在對北愛爾蘭的骨科服務進行外部臨床主導的審查之後進行的,該審查被稱為 "第一時間正確"(GIRFT)審查。

Swann先生說,他歡迎GIRFT審查,並希望它將 "幫助翻開骨科手術困難和令人沮喪的一頁"。

GIRFT報告說,"鑑於在貝爾法斯特重啟骨科選修手術方面嚴重缺乏進展,貝爾法斯特信託基金應立即在改變馬斯格雷夫公園的監督安排之前,將馬斯格雷夫公園的現有工作人員和病床圍起來,並大力重啟骨科選修手術"。

其中一項建議是,應該 "實施六天或七天的服務,包括三個工作日,並包括所有支持"。

它還建議衛生部(DoH)要求每個醫療信託機構在7月底前提供他們未來12個月的選擇性骨科手術恢復計劃。

行動計劃包括一些領域的改進時間表,如短暫性腦缺血發作(被稱為小中風)的七天評估服務、24/7血栓切除服務、向所有信託機構推廣早期支持性出院以及為中風倖存者開發社區服務。


The hubs will be based at Musgrave Park Hospital for the Belfast Trust and in the Southern and Western trusts.

The setting up of the orthopaedic surgery recovery board follows an external clinically-led review into orthopaedic services in Northern Ireland called a Getting It Right First Time (GIRFT) review.

Mr Swann said he welcomed the GIRFT review and hoped it will "help turn the page on a difficult and frustrating chapter for orthopaedic surgery".

The GIRFT report said that "given the significant lack of progress in restarting orthopaedic elective surgery in Belfast, Belfast Trust should immediately and prior to any change in the oversight arrangements of Musgrave Park, ringfence the existing staff and beds at Musgrave Park and make a significant restart to orthopaedic elective surgery".

One of the recommendations outlined that there should be "implementation of a six or seven-day service, consisting of three session days and including all support".

It also recommended that the Department of Health (DoH) requests each health trust to provide their elective orthopaedic surgery recovery plans for the next 12 months by the end of July.

The action plan includes timescales for improvements in areas like a seven day assessment service for Transient Ischemic Attacks (known as mini-strokes), a 24/7 Thrombectomy service, the rollout of early supported discharge to all trusts and the development of community-based services for stroke survivors.
