Model Hospital Trust Level Day Case Rates Q1 2016 - Q2 2019

The proportion of all admissions for a Trust that were day cases for all procedures in the British Association of Day Surgery (BADS) Directory of Procedures 6th Edition. Note that Primary total replacements of hips/knees are currently excluded from the total.

We have used benchmarks proposed by the BADS for the proportion of cases that could safely be seen as a day case (including procedure room and zero night stays). Rates lower than the BADS benchmark might indicate an opportunity to reduce inpatient stays and improve productivity, whilst maintaining or improving clinical quality and patient experience. Please note that a day case will be counted if the spell was pre-planned with day surgery intent only.

The data released here is a selection of the metrics available on Model Hospital.
