Patients with Special Needs
If you have any special needs, please tell us prior to admission so that we can do our best to provide the most appropriate help.
What to bring with you
- Inhalers, tablets or medicines you are taking.
- Glasses and case / contact lenses and case (if worn)
- Hearing aid (if worn)
- Newspaper or book
Please try to avoid bringing valuables or large sums of money into hospital. We will not be held responsible for valuable property.
- It is important that you take it easy for the rest of the day, as you may feel tired due to the effects of the anaesthetic. It may take several days to fully recover from certain operations.
- You may have a light meal after your operation unless you are feeling sick.
- You may experience a feeling of sickness or vomiting after a general anaesthetic. If so, rest and drink clear fluids only.
- Avoid alcohol for the next 24 hours, due to the effects of the anaesthetic.
- Do not drive for 24 hours post operation, as your insurance may not cover you for accidents.
- Do not operate machinery or anything that requires concentration, as this may be impaired due to the anaesthetic drugs.
If anything untoward happens, e.g. severe pain or bleeding, please contact the number on your discharge advice sheet or your own GP.
