To support COVID planning and recovery, all NHS provider
trusts with operating theatre facilities should submit to Theatre Productivity Data Collection (https://dcfdatacollections.improvement.nhs.uk)
on a fortnightly basis.
The Model Health System will be updated with benchmarked insights at system and provider level three
working days after each submission cycle. New measures, metrics and insights
will be based on user feedback from the Pathway Improvement Programme and GIRFT
teams, initially focusing on priority specialties; orthopaedics,
ophthalmology, cardiology, ENT, general surgery, gynaecology and urology.
