Visiting Times

This pre-surgery service is open Monday to Saturday for patients having orthopaedic procedures. It is located in College Road Wing.

Patients are seen by the consultant or doctor, reviewed by the anaesthetist, prepared and escorted to theatre before being admitted. They may go to a ward later if they need to stay overnight. Patients should follow pre-admission guidelines about preparing for surgery.
