CPOC Policy

Delivering perioperative care

CPOC is currently reviewing its approach to 'influencing policy' to raise the profile of the perioperative agenda. 

CPOC Strategic Aim 4: Influencing Policy

We will advocate to improve the patient experience of care and seek to improve population health and healthcare value. As we deliver our work, patient and public engagement will be at the core of all we do. We will make a strong case for the importance of perioperative care to realisation of the NHS Long-Term Plan and similar plans in the devolved nations. In addition, we will encourage transformational change and cross-organisational, multidisciplinary, working.

A blueprint for the NHS efficiency 

CPOC has developed a manifesto ahead of the forthcoming general election to provide ideas for political parties to incorporate into their own manifestos. We advocate for the NHS to continue to mandate perioperative care with the establishment of a transformation fund to overcome initial financial barriers to setting perioperative services up; and the incorporation of perioperative care into the inspection frameworks of organisations such as the CQC.
