Royal College of Surgeons hails landmark publication of individual outcomes data

Royal College of Surgeons calls publication of individual surgeons’ outcomes data ‘a watershed moment for surgery’.

Approximately 3,500 surgeons have achieved a world first, by publishing their individual surgical results. The innovative move will drive forward improvements in care and enable patients to understand far more about the nature of a surgeon’s work and their recovery after an operation.

For the first time, patients and the public will be able to read information which gives details of a surgeon’s performance by looking at the outcomes of particular procedures or operations such as a hip replacement or surgery for obesity.
