South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust has become one of only three NHS trusts in the country to have three of its own surgical robots – and now has the potential to become a national centre of excellence. Surgical teams at The James Cook University Hospital now have three da Vinci robots which means more patients than ever before can benefit from minimally invasive surgery.
NHS chiefs in Teesside are celebrating being highly commended for the innovative work they have done to improve the health and wellbeing of patients before surgery, which is making a huge difference to patient recovery. The PREPWELL team were runners up in the Anaesthesia and Perioperative Medicine Team of the Year Category of the British Medical Journal Awards announced on 7 October 2020.
