1 in 5 women suffer from heavy menstrual bleeding1, and account for 12% of all gynaecology referrals.2
NovaSure is the market leading endometrial ablation technology in the UK, with 90% of hospitals already using the treatment.3
The British Association of Day Surgery singled out ‘endometrial ablation’ in the National Day Surgery Delivery Pack supported by GIRFT, as a ‘Key Procedure to move from day surgery to the outpatient setting’.4
Despite this, only 50% of Trusts currently offering the procedure have 'made the move' to the outpatient setting.4
East Suffolk and North Essex NHS Foundation Trust have made the move to outpatients with NovaSure, watch the video to learn more about their experience:
Why MAKE THE MOVE to outpatients to streamline Women's Services in your Trust?
Reduce your patient backlog
Are you facing the challenge of reducing the backlog of patients awaiting surgical procedures?
Using an outpatient setting for NovaSure procedures creates a more streamlined treatment pathway, with waiting times becoming proportionally shorter. Increasing capacity to reduce the backlog of patients awaiting treatment.
Reduce costs for your Trust
Did you know? You can reduce endometrial ablation procedure costs for your hospital by approx. £1000/patient*.
All it takes is one simple change. Move your NovaSure® endometrial ablation services to outpatients.
This change also improves the patient experience.5 The procedure can be performed without undergoing a general anaesthetic, resulting in:
- Less time in hospital
- Shorter recovery time
- Less risk of infection
- Less time off work
