Abstract

A retrospective analysis was carried out on all day surgery admissions at Glasgow's Royal Hospital for Sick Children between 1993 and 2006. The aim of the study was to analyse the total number of operations per day, month and year; specialties involved; and age range of the children admitted, to examine how these factors changed over the 13-year study period. We also studied the specific operations performed in 2006 by each specialty.
