How do you become well known in the NHS for being innovative,
particularly in the perioperative area regarding evaluation and
communication of risk? How can cardiopulmonary exercise testing
lead to shared decision making? Hear how aortic aneurysms are dealt

of healthcare within his institution. Do you need to develop a
broad knowledge of all surgery and medicine so that you understand
what is going on within the different surgical specialities?
Following this discussion is had about the GIRFT (Getting It Right
First Time) project. The stated aim is 'to help improve the quality
of care within the NHS by reducing unwarranted variations, bringing
efficiencies and improving patient outcomes'. This piece gives you
the detail from one of the joint clinical leads.
