An article entitled “Day case: 23 hour breast surgical pathway – a retrospective audit in a district hospital” was published in the European Journal of Surgical Oncology, (EJSO), May 2011, Vol 37, Iss 5, pS23

Background: Currently majority of mastectomy and large number of wide local excisions are being carried out as in-patient procedure and NHS improvement plan has suggested to carry out majority of breast operations including mastectomy as a day case surgery with a maximum of overnight stay. We carried out this retrospective audit in our district hospital to find out our trend.
