This resource aims to set out some simple keys to success for the introduction of Protected Elective Surgical Units (PESUs) to help ensure the continuation of surgical services for patients undergoing urgent or complex elective surgery in an environment where they are protected from acquiring Covid-19 and other infections pre and post operatively. This is not seen as a temporary measure and is aligned with the goal of maximising patient care through safe and efficient work practices as part of a more robust system for elective surgical services. This is seen as a sustainable healthcare delivery model.
