Audit projects

Urine SmokescreenR tests in elective plastic surgery pre admission clinics: preliminary prospective assessment of 100 consecutive patients seen in the pre-admission clinic for breast reconstruction/reduction/augmentation and Abdominoplasty procedures. Personally undertaken
“Inappropriate” referrals in a spoke unit: a retrospective review of 119 consecutive new patients seen in the out-patient department and their appropriateness for surgery in the current NHS. Personally undertaken
Aesthetic audit: audited the exposure and training of the West Midlands SpR’s to aesthetic surgery and their views on future training. Personally undertaken
Pyogenic granuloma: audited Paediatric Plastic surgical management of this condition at Birmingham children’s hospital. Personally undertaken.
Operation Notes: A completed cycle showing improvement in the operation notes involving the excision of skin tumors at the City hospital Stoke on Trent. Personally undertaken.
Antibiotic Policy: Audit of the adherence to trust policy and administration of antibiotics in the pre-operative care of hand trauma patients at the Broomfield Hospital. Personally undertaken.
Consent: Guy’s and St. Thomas’ NHS Hospital Trust instituted a policy stating that the principal surgeon must consent the patient. We audited and improved our consenting process. Personally undertaken.
asting time: I completed a full audit cycle at the West Norwich Hospital, as part of a regional East Anglia Plastic Surgery Audit. The outcome improved fasting times for emergency patients and resulted in better communication between Anaesthetist and ward staff. Personally undertaken.
Post-operative complications: Responsible for auditing post-operative complications in a rolling audit in ENT for 6months. As a result the team was able to establish that local complication rates were comparable with national rates. Continuous audit cycle. Personally undertaken.
Emergency workload: Responsible for auditing the increased workload in ENT after
a trust merger over 6months. This proved the admission rate and after-hours workload had increased, which required the trust to increase the SHO numbers/current SHO banding. Personally undertaken.
Wound infection rate audit: Responsible for auditing Orthopaedic infection rates and comparing them to the Trust PAS system. Ridiculous high rates recorded by PAS were found to be misleading and unacceptable. The outcome resulted in no complication results being put on the hospital web site prior to a Consultants approval. Personally undertaken.
Emergency Nurse Practitioner vs. Casualty Doctor: Assessed the effectiveness of the Emergency Nurse Practitioner service versus SHO’s in the Casualty setting. This audit showed that a Casualty doctor was still assessing and treating approximately 3times the number of patients than any given ENP during a shift. No action was taken by the Trust. Personally undertaken.

The following links run through my plastic surgery training and achievements to date, including current posts and previous positions, registrations with relevant medical bodies, clinical research papers and presentations.

We, as doctors never stop learning and evidence of this will include a long list of meetings and courses required to keep up to date with the constantly changing field of Aesthetic Surgery.
