What happens on the day of an operation?

You will see a member of staff from the accounts team; they will check your admission and account details with you.

You will then be sent up to the appropriate ward area, where you will be greeted by a member of the nursing team. They will show you to your room or bed space.

A nurse will complete the admission process with you. This will include: confirming your identity, completing paperwork, asking you questions about yourself and your health, (this is made shorter if you complete the Self Assessment Booklet), taking your blood pressure, pulse and temperature.

You will be given two hospital identity bracelets with your name and details on it. If you are allergic to anything such as some food, types of medication or latex please tell your nurse and a red allergy bracelet will be added.

You will be asked to wear a cotton hospital gown.

You will see your surgeon and/or anaesthetist prior to your procedure. Feel free to ask any questions at this time. You will then sign a consent form, unless you have already done so in the outpatient’s clinic. You will be given a copy of the consent form for your own records by your consultant or nurse.

If you are having an operation on a particular part of the body this may be marked by the surgeon at this time.

The nurses will check your personal details again before taking you to the operating theatre.
