Theatre Bookings team
Once you’ve had your initial consultation, and your Consultant has included you on the waiting list for treatment, our Theatre Bookings team will book your preoperative assessment clinic appointment and your surgery date.
Preoperative Assessment office
Once you’ve seen the Preoperative Assessment nurses and had an anaesthetic review, if necessary, the administration team in the Preoperative Assessment office will handle your results.
They’re responsible for filing your test and scan results with your notes and highlighting any abnormal results to the clinical teams. They also liaise with your GP, Consultant and Theatre Bookings team to ensure it’s safe for you to have surgery.
If your surgery is taking place in our Ambulatory Care Unit (ACU) or main theatres, our Admissions team will look after you.
The team is responsible for preparing your notes for your admission and will contact you one week before you’re due to come in. They’ll advise you when to arrive at the hospital and what to bring with you. They’ll go through any concerns you may have and what to expect.
If staying on the ward, our Ward Administrator is available to answer any non-clinical questions you may have. This could be anything from contacting a relative, arranging transport or ordering a newspaper.
Following your surgery, and on discharge, they’ll book a post-operative follow-up appointment for you to see your Consultant, if required.
