Recommendation ID
What models of service delivery enable intraoperative endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) for bile duct clearance to be delivered within the NHS? What are the costs and benefits of different models of service delivery?
Any explanatory notes
(if applicable)
Evidence reviewed for this guideline identified that intraoperative ERCP is both clinically and cost effective, but it is unclear whether delivery of this intervention is feasible in the NHS because of the way current services are organised. It is also unclear whether intraoperative ERCP will remain cost effective if services are reorganised.
