Understanding Category 2 elective surgery

Elective surgery is surgery that, in the opinion of the treating clinician, is necessary and admission for which can be delayed for at least twenty-four hours.

For semi-urgent (Category 2) patients, admission within 90 days is desirable due to the clinical condition of the patient.
