Commitment to Safety
Ever since his appointment, patient safety and good patient outcomes have been of great importance to Professor Qureshi in his practice. In order to address this, he set up the successful Enhanced Recovery Programme which has benefited not only his own practice, but those of other surgeons. This has resulted in a significant reduction in the complication rate and length of stay for patients after surgery. This resulted in Professor Qureshi being short-listed for the prestigious National Patient Safety awards. In order to ensure his own results are continuously audited, Professor Qureshi set up a laparoscopic database where his patient data is entered prospectively, providing more powerful conclusions. This data has resulted in a number of publications in national and international forums. These demonstrate that Professor Qureshi’s results are comparable to the best in the world.
