Preparing for surgery and aftercare

One of the benefits of being treated at our hospital is the ‘one-stop-service’ of your outpatient appointment. Where possible we will complete any pre-treatment tests there and then, to save you making multiple trips, and our anaesthetists and rehabilitation team will assess you at the same time.

Your outpatient appointment is also an opportunity for you to meet the consultant who will perform your treatment. Feel free to ask any questions you wish – you may even want to write these down ahead of your appointment. They will explain any special preparations you may need to make before your treatment.

On the day of your treatment, wear something light and comfortable, so you’re as relaxed as possible.

  • This was my third operation at the centre and I was treated no differently each time, whether I was NHS or private. Everyone was kind, professional and efficient and the centre was spotless.

  • At all levels, from reception, to the porters, administrators, nurses and consultants, people took pride in their work and clearly cared for their patients.

 COVID-19 (coronavirus) alert

We continue to support NHS England during the Coronavirus crisis by providing the additional capacity it needs to treat non COVID-19 patients, but are now planning a gradual return to treating our own elective patients.
