General Surgery Day Case Surgery

General Surgery Day Case

On the day of your operation

You will be admitted to the day surgery unit (DSU) by a registered practitioner who will explain what to expect and answer any questions you may have. The consultant surgeon will see you prior to your surgery and discuss your procedure with you, once you are happy to proceed the consultant will ask you to sign your consent form and then we will proceed with surgery.

After your operation

After your operation has been completed the registered practitioner will run through the care of your surgical wound with you, they will also make sure this is given in written form so you can read it once you get home. Once you've had refreshments and the surgeon is happy with your recovery you will be discharged from the unit and given advice on what to do if you have any problems.

If a follow up appointment is required you will be informed before discharge.
