Abstract: OBJECTIVE: This study explores the views of doctors regarding the advantages and benefits of one day surgical clinic procedures and their intention to support the application in clinical practice. METHOD: One hundred and seventy four consultants in surgery from four large hospitals in Athens participated in the survey completing a specially designed questionnaire. RESULTS: The vast majority of surgeons (n=165, 94.8%) expressed their intention to support the organization and operation of one-day surgery procedures. Most reported that one-day surgery would be more beneficial for financial reasons (from both the hospital and the patients' perspective) compared to clinical outcomes. Several socio-demographic factors were found to be associated with the study outcomes. CONCLUSIONS: The results show that one-day surgery clinics could be developed more extensively in the hospitals of the Greek National Health Service.
