Prior to your surgery you may have to attend an appointment at the hospital with the pre-operative care nurses to assess your fitness for surgery. This may involve a general health check, blood tests, ECG and chest x-ray.

You will be sent details directly from the Hampshire Clinic or the Candover Clinic regarding your forthcoming procedure. This will confirm your admission date and time, eating instructions prior to your operation, what to bring with you for your stay in hospital, and any other relevant details.

If your procedure is on a morning theatre list you will be asked to come in to the hospital at approximately 7.30am. If you are having a general anaesthetic, you will be asked not to eat after midnight the night before. If your procedure is in the afternoon you will be asked to come in at approximately 11.30am and to have just a light breakfast before 08.00am on the morning of your procedure. On admission, the hospital staff will run through any relevant paperwork, and the Consultant and Anaesthetist will also come and see you and complete the consenting process.

As part of your care, your consultant may prescribe medication for you to take home when you are discharged from hospital. In general, take home medication charges are not covered by your insurers. Please check your policy regarding this.
