Guidelines for patients undergoing surgery as part of an Enhanced Recovery Programme (ERP)

These guidelines have been produced to provide general information for patients undergoing surgery as part of an Enhanced Recovery Programme (ERP). They have been written by medical and non-medical members of three medical Royal Colleges, all of which run patient groups that provide support to the clinical members in the differing specialties. The guidelines have been reviewed by medical and non-medical members of each participating College and other allied parties.

 

The Royal College of Anaesthetists Patient Liaison Group
