For a planned surgery to take place, we must have up to date information about your health and medication.
If you are having a general anesthetic procedure, please consider the following points:
- Has something changed about your general health since you last saw the pre-operative nurse?
- Have you been admitted to hospital since you last saw the pre-operative nurse?
- Have you been given any new medication including a course of anti-biotics since you last saw the pre-operative nurse?
If you become unwell within 6 weeks of your surgery date, please inform us. It is critical that we know if you have had a chest infection.
If you have had any diarrhea and vomiting within 48 hours of your surgery date, do not attend the hospital and call the Pre Assessment team on the number below.
Please contact the Pre-Operative Assessment team on 01271 370213 to discuss the points above.
