Confirmation of Surgery

Attending the Pre Assessment Clinic is not confirmation that you will be attending your surgery. If you wish to continue with your surgery on the date provided you must confirm this separately with the Theatre Scheduling Department.

Operating theatres

If you will be having your operation in the hospital's main operating theatre, there may be a delay if a patient is unexpectedly admitted to the hospital who needs an urgent operation.

You will be taken to the main operation theatre by trolley or wheelchair, or it may be possible for you to walk, escorted by a nurse.

If you have your operation in the day unit's theatre then you will be able to walk. Please remember to bring your slippers.
