On behalf of the team who will be caring for you, we would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to the Day Surgery Unit. The unit is managed by speciality manager Angela Larkin, alongside her team of experienced nurses, health care assistants and ward clerks.
Our elective Day Surgery Unit treats over 13,000 patients a year from a variety of specialities to enable patients to have their surgery with an aim to discharge the same day. Surgery is scheduled for morning, afternoon and evening theatre lists. Please note your arrival time is not your surgery time, you may be expected to wait a number of hours before going to surgery, so please bring a book, puzzles etc to help occupy you. We will aim to keep you updated throughout your stay, but if you have any concerns please speak to your nursing staff.
