(c) See response to question 1 (a).

(2) Canberra Health Services (CHS) has adopted the advice of the United Kingdom (UK) National Confidential Enquiry into Patient Outcome and Death (NCEPOD), which highlighted that operating elective theatres out of hours is not safe for patient care unless all the services the hospital provides are also available out of hours. Theatres can be opened outside normal business hours if they have been resourced appropriately to provide care across the patient journey continuum.

(3) CHS does not operate theatres for elective surgery outside of normal business hours, except in specific circumstances to achieve a focused outcome (such as a planned waiting list reduction), at which times CHS ensures appropriate resourcing to ensure safety of patients and staff.
