Day Surgery means that patients come into hospital, receive their treatment and return home on the same day. It is now the treatment of choice for a large number of people.
A high quality Day Surgery Unit provides a service that most patients find preferable to staying in hospital overnight. The benefits that we offer include: shorter waiting lists, possibly less emotional upset and, hopefully, less disruption to both our patients and their families’ normal routines.
Patients who are admitted for Day Surgery are less likely to have their procedures cancelled.
Research has shown that, after surgery, patients are more likely to feel better and to recover more quickly in the familiar surroundings of their own homes.
Our aim is to confirm these findings.
Success and Safety
The success and safety of treatment in our Day Surgery Unit depends on our highly experienced and caring team who will:
- Provide you with a welcoming, safe environment that encourages you to rest, relax and is comfortable to your needs
- Ensure that you are appropriately selected, as not everyone is suitable for Day Surgery
- Provide you with detailed instructions about how to prepare for Day Surgery and what to expect afterwards
It is important that patients read and follow these instructions.
