Day patients

Coming into hospital as a day patient means that you will usually be able to return home on the same day as your operation or procedure.

Sometimes depending on your condition following your operation, you may need to stay in overnight. This will be fully discussed with you.

Please check your admission information for details of when you should come into hospital, which unit/ward to attend and what to bring with you.

We aim to provide the highest standards of care and hope that your stay will be as pleasant and comfortable as possible.

We understand that you may be nervous, but we are here to help. Please do not hesitate to raise any worries or questions you may have.

In this section you’ll find information on how to prepare for your visit to hospital and what to expect during your stay.
