Research published in the British Journal of Perioperative Nursing (January 2001) by Baines and Colquhoun using data obtained during their study at the Neuro Theatres at North Bristol NHS Trust concluded that there were three key areas where procedure packs produced benefits:

  • Time taken to lay up a theatre in preparation for a procedure

  • Reduction in the number of stocked items required for a procedure,thereby reducing waste, ordering costs, packaging etc

  • The costs associated with the stock holding of individual stock items - one off inventory advantage
