RCPCH National guidance for the recovery of elective surgery in children

The COVID-19 pandemic resulted in the cessation of all but the most urgent elective children’s surgical cases during the period of peak prevalence of infection in the general population. There is now a focus on addressing the huge backlog of procedures which have been delayed since the beginning of the pandemic in a safe and effective way. This has been the result of a huge collective effort by the RCPCH, APAGBI, RCoA, BAPS, RCS England and the Association of Perioperative Practice, and many others

The RCPCH recommendations use the most up to date evidence to inform practice that will enable recovery of children’s elective surgery.
