Royal College of Surgeons (RCOS) – Surgical Hub Survey
A survey of UK adults on the importance of willingness to travel to “surgical hub” hospitals (those without COVID-19 patients) for operations
  •  Approaching six in ten (58%) UK adults say that if they needed an operation, it would be important for them to be treated in a surgical hub hospital.
  • Seven in ten (73%) UK adults say that if they needed an operation, they would be willing to travel to a surgical hub if it was not their nearest local hospital.
  • Three-quarters (77%) of UK adults think that an hour or less is a reasonable time for a person to be asked to travel to have an operation at a surgical hub hospital.
  • Three-quarters (78%) of UK adults agree that the government should continue to give the NHS £1 billion extra funding each year for the next 6 years to tackle long hospital waiting times.
