Saturday Surgeries

Background

Due to the Hospital’s excellent reputation for healing critically ill children, there is a huge demand for the Hospital’s services resulting in long surgical waiting lists for non-critical conditions.

These long surgical waiting lists often lead to procedures such as ENT and General Paediatric Clinical cases, which are less critical, being postponed to make place for intricate, lifesaving operations that must take preference due to time constraints and the scarcity of beds. This creates waiting lists that may eventually result in minor surgical conditions becoming critical cases. Though not life threatening, surgery is life-changing for all of these patients and their families.
