Clinical guide to surgical prioritisation during the coronavirus pandemic

The Federation of Specialty Surgical Associations (FSSA) hosts and maintains the most up-to-date version of the Clinical Guide to Surgical Prioritisation During the Coronavirus Pandemic, a guidance document covering most surgical specialties and assigning a priority level and timeframe to each surgical procedure.


The guidance updated on 21 August includes the following changes:

  • An emphasis on regular review of cases and movement as necessary between the priorities;
  • An enhanced Recovery Prioritisation Matrix to include psychological distress;
  • Updates to vascular surgery, notably the size of AAAs for allocation to different priorities;
  • Updates to the cancer procedures in P2.
