National guidance for the recovery of elective surgery in children, RCPCH (updated 27th July 2020)

The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in the cessation of all but the most urgent elective children's surgical cases during the period of peak prevalence of infection in the general population. In the period March to May 2020 over 50,000 children in England had surgery from all surgical specialties postponed. There is an urgent requirement to re-establish elective children's surgical services.
