If you are attending the hospital as an outpatient you will need to bring a list of your current medications. These include prescribed medicines, over the counter medicines and any vitamin supplements or herbal remedies.
Upon arrival, our friendly reception staff will be on hand to welcome you, confirm payment arrangements and help with any non-clinical queries you may have. You will then be looked after by one of our nurses or consultants who will help you prepare for your procedure. A member of our medical team will ask you some questions so that everything relevant is known about your health, including your medical history. If you would feel more comfortable having a chaperone with you during medical consultations or treatments please let us know either before or during your visit, so this can be arranged.
Please make all clinical staff aware of any allergies that you have had at present or in the past. If you are attending the hospital as an inpatient, your consultant should be your first port of call if you have questions concerning your procedure. However, our theatre staff or our reception team may also be able to offer assistance. You can contact us on 0207 034 3301.
There may be restrictions on what you can consume in the lead up to your procedure; it is very important that you follow the instructions given by your consultant, if not, your operation may not be able to take place.
