Kingston Hospital is one of five hospitals taking part in an ODP (Operating Department Practitioners) advocacy pilot project led by Health Education England, and part of a London-wide scheme to raise the profile of the ODP profession within hospital communities.
Today our ODPs launched their very own reference board in Main Theatres. ODPs are one of the Allied Health professions (AHPs) and our ODPs at Kingston work with Main Theatres, Day Surgery theatres and Labour Ward.
The new reference board celebrates our ODPs and outlines the knowledge and skills required for this important role. It also gives some historical background to the role and explains where and how our ODPs work at Kingston Hospital.
