Innovative organisational design for surgeries

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    This article presents an innovative organisational model for the provision of routine operational surgeries in the UK. The focus is on the organisational structures and infrastructural fundamentals, which any innovative service provider entering the health sector should possess. The negative features of current routine operational surgery provision in the UK (e.g. long waiting lists, expensive private sector alternatives) are addressed through an examination of each critically-important organisational management issue. It is envisaged that the proposed organisational design could become the basis of a private sector enterprise, or be adopted by the NHS itself, following a systematic organisational review and realignment of routine operational surgery structures.
