You will need to arrive at the hospital at least 2 hours before your operation

You will normally be advised to stop eating food and drink only water the night before

Once you have been given a date for your procedure, the hospital will send you a letter containing all the information you need as a day care patient.

You may be required to attend a pre-admission visit.

After surgery, you will be sent home the same day with medication if required.

We will contact you to arrange a follow-up appointment with Mr Kirkland at the hospital. This appointment will depend on what type of operation you had.

In view of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are now offering patients video consultations to comply with government guidelines set out over the next few weeks. This will ensure staff and patient safety but also means patients can still be seen. We can offer advice, treatment and tests where appropriate. Please contact us for further information or to book a video consultation.
