Are you concerned about the provision of post-op care and bed capacity across the region?

Are you a trainee with an interest in research / management / leadership / peri-op / ICU?

We are looking for trainees of any stage or background working in anaesthetics/ICU

Help run the PEACH-SW in your department by signing-up to be a PEACH-SW Local Lead for 1+ days during the dates above!


Two arms of the evaluation: 

➢ Peri-op arm- we're collecting data on every patient having surgery with a need for a post-op bed (excluding day case surgery, cardiac, obs & paeds).  As a PEACH-SW Local Lead you will help troubleshoot queries from the theatre anaesthetists in your hospital, who will be using a QR code to enter data on every case using an electronic form

➢ Critical care arm- we're collecting data examining how capacity influences your ability to admit both emergency and elective patients every day. We need ICU consultants to scan a QR code twice a day please (as a PEACH-SW Local Lead you will help answer any queries from the ICU team)
