- Avoid being a Surgeon – the event will go more smoothly if you act as host and facilitator.
- Get a sense of your Patient’s needs ahead of time by using a survey and sharing this information with your Surgeons. You might have to tentatively assign surgeons, but be flexible.
- Tea and Crumpets are part of the magical formula (the Surgery was invented in the United Kingdom!)
