During Your Stay

What to Bring

As you will be a day case patient, you will not need an overnight bag but here is a check list of useful things you could bring with you on the day: 


Please do not bring large sums of money, jewellery or valuable items.

Please note the hospital cannot accept responsibility for items not secured in the hospital safe.


Your Admission

Your time of arrival will have been confirmed in your admission letter or by a telephone call. On the day of your admission, it is very important that you arrive prepared for your operation and in time to meet your surgeon and/or anaesthetist before the operating list commences. Please ensure that you have followed all guidelines regarding fasting for your procedure.

On arrival, please report to reception, where your admission details will be confirmed. Please be aware that your arrival time is not the time of your procedure. The team may be able to provide an anticipated time of your operation, however, this may be subject to change. Any further information will be provided by the nursing staff.

If you are having surgery, one of the nurses will check your blood pressure, respiratory rate, pulse and temperature, then do some final checks to ensure you are correctly prepared. You may be asked to confirm your personal details by all clinicians attending to you, prior to your operation. This is recommended practice for increased patient safety. An identity bracelet will also be put on your wrist and if you have any allergies, this band will be red in colour to alert the staff. Your surgeon or anaesthetist will confirm your medical history and answer all of your remaining pre-operative questions.


Transport and Parking

As you are a day case patient, most patients will spend approximately four hours post operatively with us (if local anaesthetic is used it may be less). Please ensure that a responsible adult is available to collect you.


Hospital Disabled Access

The hospital entrances and exits have been designed to enable easy access for wheelchairs. If you require the use of a wheelchair during your stay, either for yourself or visitors, please let the receptionist know either beforehand or on arrival.


Your Procedure

Please ensure that you make all necessary preparations for your procedure, including (if appropriate or requested) removing nail varnish, nail extensions, cosmetics, jewellery, and body piercings. Procedures are rarely cancelled, but please be aware that they can occasionally be postponed. 


Your accommodation

Depending on your procedure, you may be admitted in to one of our state of the art day case pods for recovery. Rest assured your comfort is always our priority.


Meals and Dietary Requirements

We provide light refreshments for all our private day case patients, depending upon your procedure. Special dietary requirements can be catered for including vegetarian and those patients with any cultural or religious requirements.


Smoking policy

Please note all hospitals operate a no smoking policy.
