The surgical phase

You’ll play an important part of the surgery team and will:

  • prepare all the necessary instruments and equipment for the operations, including microscopes, lasers and endoscopes
  • provide the correct surgical instruments and materials to the surgeon
  • be responsible for surgical instruments, equipment and swabs during the operation
  • act as a link between the surgical team and other parts of the theatre and hospital
  • anticipate the requirements of the surgical team and respond effectively

The recovery phase

You’ll:

  • support the patient on their arrival into the recovery unit
  • monitor a patient’s physiological parameters
  • provide appropriate treatment until the patient has recovered from the effects of the anaesthesia and/or surgery
  • assess the patient in order to ensure they can be discharged back to a ward
  • evaluate the care given during each phase

Where do ODPs work?

You’ll be primarily employed within operating theatres but increasingly in other critical care areas of a hospital.

ODPs also manage the preparation of the environment, equipment and act as the link between the surgical team and other parts of the operating theatre and hospital. They must be able to anticipate the requirements of the surgical team and respond effectively.
