New Robotics Framework

7 October 2020

This new framework offers a wide range of robotic surgical equipment for NHS hospital trusts across the whole of England, together with a compliant purchasing route.

The two surgical settings covered are minimally invasive surgery and spinal or neurological surgery.

Benefits of using robotics in surgery include:

  • Faster recovery times and reduced risk of infection
  • Reduced postoperative pain reported by patients
  • A reduction in the risk of adhesion formation and post-operative hernias
  • Better cosmetic results for patients
  • Safer working position for surgeons from a console controlling the movements of robotic arms.

For our NHS customers, this represents a more effective use of vital resources and further savings for hospitals due to patients requiring shorter stays.
