Surgery research carried out in Rotherham
PATIENTS from the Rotherham area have helped in a research study to assess why some people have more complications after elective surgery than others.
People treated by the Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust joined those under other health trusts across the county in the week-long International Surgical Outcomes Study.
The patients agreed to let researchers collect data about surgical procedures.
Dr Caroline Pickstone, chief operating officer for the National Institute for Health Research’s Clinical Research Network for Yorkshire, said: “Building up an accurate data of why some patients suffer from post-operative complications after elective surgery is really important in terms of helping the NHS to deliver improved healthcare services.”
