Brief description Medical co-morbidities in surgical patients affect post-surgical recovery, resulting in higher health service costs and poorer patient outcomes. Preliminary data indicate reduced post-surgical length of stay for patients with modifiable risk factors who attended a specialist preoperative clinic. This project will analyse existing data to identify patient sub-groups with the greatest capacity to benefit from specialist preoperative assessment, and evaluate new service pathways for these patients.
