Changes to some elective surgery: have your say

Criteria for varicose vein procedures, cataract surgery and a specific knee procedure (knee arthroscopy) on the NHS are being looked at—have your say.

In June and July, Healthwatch Enfield announced that four treatment areas were being reviewed under a clinically-led programme called London Choosing Wisely. The programme aimsto develop pan-London policies to ensure patients across the capital have consistent access to treatment that improves their health, based on the latest available evidence. This month, a further three treatment areas are being reviewed: knee replacement, varicose vein procedures and cataract surgery.
