Your Clinical Team
You will be under the care of your doctor and the nurse on duty, who will liaise with your doctor throughout your stay. A Resident Medical doctor will always be available overnight.
Following your treatment
Once your treatment is complete and you are safe to leave the operating suite, you will be brought back to the ward. Your nurse will regularly record your observations and ensure you are comfortable. For patients scheduled to go home the same day, your doctor may not visit you and your discharge will be managed by your nurse. For patients staying in overnight, your doctor may visit you later that evening or the next morning. Regardless, he/she will ring the ward to check on your progress.
Once your doctor or nurse is satisfied that you have recovered from the anaesthetic, you will be discharged and able to return home.
Your nurse will provide you with a discharge pack, containing instructions on your post-op care, prescription for medications you may need and follow-up details.
Your follow-up appointment will be decided by your doctor but if you wish to be seen any earlier or later, please let the nurse know.
If you have any questions at all regarding your inpatient stay with us, please call 01709 464200.
