At Spire Little Aston Hospital we understand that coming into hospital can be a daunting prospect, therefore we want to ensure we answer your questions so that your stay with us is as comfortable as possible.
Taking care of you in a clean and comfortable environment
By now you will have seen your consultant and have been booked with us for your procedure, you will be given treatment specific information prior to admission which will give you details on preparing for your stay and what you will need to bring with you on the day of admission.
Generally we ask that you do not drink alcohol during the day before admission and if you are a smoker, you should try and cut down completely, especially if you will be having a general anaesthetic.
On the day of admission you will need to bring with you:
- Dressing gown
- Nightdress / Pyjamas (not required if you are a daycase admission)
- Slippers (closed-in style)
- Any current medication you are taking in its original packaging (including herbal medicines)
- Books or magazines
- Toiletries, including toothbrush, toothpaste and a hairbrush or comb
- Any scans or x-rays relating to your admission
If you wish, you are welcome to bring a battery operated MP3/CD player. If you bring any electrical items that need to be plugged into an electrical outlet, these will have to be electrically tested on admission. We have free wireless internet in our patient rooms so you may wish to bring your laptop.
Visiting times are 10am-8pm, seven days a week.
