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.

Coronavirus update:

Mr Kirkland offers both video and face to face consultations for his patients. If you are elderly, vulnerable or shielding, a video consultation in the first instance can be beneficial. Quite often, we are able to instigate treatment or investigations following video consultation. If you are happy to be seen in a face to face consultation, we follow strict hospital guidelines regarding COVID-19 to prioritise patient and staff safety.
