Commissioning support for planned surgical care

The Royal College of Surgeons has published 28 commissioning guides, using a NICE accredited process, describing care pathways for patients with surgical symptoms.

The pathways outline the best evidence approach to common surgical conditions.

These are commissioning not clinical pathways and include clear standards and levers to support implementation. Alongside the commissioning guides are free HES based data tools to allow CCGs and providers to benchmark care.
