BADS Directory of Procedures 5th Edition
Adding To Basket

5th edition of the BADS Directory of recommended Day and Short stay surgical procedures.

Published in June 2016. Bads Directory of Procedures is a publication which is regularly updated to provide a focus for clinicians and managers involved in the planning and provision of short stay elective and emergency surgery.

Contains over 200 surgical procedures with OPCS codes, categorised by surgical specialty. Medical and Emergency Procedures that can be done as a Day Case have been added to the Directory.

Each procedure is assigned to four treatment options:

  1. Procedure Room 
  2. Zero night stay
  3. One night stay
  4. Two night stay

This document replaces the concept of Baskets and Trolleys of procedures.

It is recommended to purchase the National Dataset supplement along with the Procedure Directory, providing information showing the current "state of play" for the surgical procedures listed in the main publication. This data reflects outcomes for England during the 2015 calendar year, with planned management intent for day surgery, and is divided into cohorts showing the percentage of procedures successfully carried out on a day case basis. The columns next to each procedure indicate the performance of the top 5%, 25% and 50% of hospitals with each operation.
