Preparing for surgery

All patients booked for elective surgery will be assessed by a nurse in the Pre-admission Clinic prior to surgery. This allows us to identify any risk factors before your surgery and ensure that we can minimise the risk of any complications during or following your procedure.

We may also arrange for you to see an anaesthetist before your operation if necessary.
