Preparing for your Admission
We will make every effort to ensure your stay is comfortable and as relaxed as possible.
Everyone is different and how you prepare for your stay will depend upon the treatment or operation you require. We will send you written information specific to your operation, treatment or investigation when we confirm your admission details.
We hope that the patient information below will assist you in preparing you for your admission to hospital.
As a rule, you should not drink alcohol the day before your visit and, if you are a smoker, you should also cut down as much as you can, especially if you will be having a general anaesthetic.
If you get a cold, sore throat or any other illness, please tell us straight away, as your admission may need to be re-scheduled.
We ask you to bring the following items with you:
- dressing gown
- nightdress or pyjamas
- any current medication
- books or magazines
- toiletries, including toothbrush, toothpaste and a hairbrush or comb
- If you wish, you are welcome to bring a laptop, Ipad or personal stereo/CD player
- We ask you not to bring valuables, jewellery or large amounts of money with you
