Appointment Instructions

A letter will be sent to patients informing them of their provisional admission date and instructions to contact the admissions office.

It is important that you follow the instructions on this letter. If instructed, please contact the office, prior to travel, to ensure that there is a bed available and prevent a possible wasted journey, as your admission is contingent on availability of beds. Once your bed is confirmed please report to the admissions assessment office. To find the Admissions Assessment Office enter main reception, turn right at the lifts, take first left and the office is the first door on the left.

If you are booked to come in as a Day of Surgery Admission (DOSA) you will have attended our pre-assessment clinic (see above).

On the morning of your admission you will report directly to the Admissions Assessment Office at your allocated time where you will be checked in to hospital and taken to the DOSA lounge. Here you will be admitted by the nurse, the doctor and reviewed by the anaesthetist prior to your surgery. You will have your surgery that day so it is important you have followed all instructions given to you at pre-assessment and by your doctor. For further information please read the attached leaflet.
