Improving the working environment for safe surgical care

Improving the working environment for safe surgical care This discussion paper outlines a number of critical recommendations to government to greatly improve safety in the delivery of surgical treatment and patient care. The report notes factors adversely affecting morale, including a lack of team structure, poor communication, high stress levels, and limited training opportunities.

The report also records how staff, at times, feel diverted away from the patient-centred care they strive to deliver because of administrative and IT issues, and believe that being more innovative and efficient with existing resources could make a positive difference. Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh
