Before your operation, you may need some tests performed. Your surgeon will organise these for you.
You will be advised by letter regarding the date of your surgery and will receive instructions regarding what medications you need to stop, and when.
You will be informed of what time you are expected at the hospital. On arrival, you will need to report to the admission’s office or to the reception desk where they will check all your details including:
Your current address
Your contact details
Emergency contact details
Private health insurance details
They will also provide you with directions to the ward where you are to be admitted. If you would like a tour of the hospital prior to surgery, please ask the nursing staff on the ward once you are admitted. The ward staff is happy to take you and your family on a tour so that you will know where the operating theatre and ICU unit are located prior to your operation.
