We work hard to make your time with us relaxed and as comfortable as can be.
Coming into hospital can be a daunting prospect. At the Spire Regency Hospital we aim to answer all your questions from you as a patient or from your family to make your stay as comfortable as possible.
Information that we give patients prior to admission is specific to each operation, treatment or investigation. We will also give you instructions on preparing for your stay and what to bring with you on the day of admission.
Before you leave home
On the day you are due to come in to hospital please phone us if you feel unwell, for example with a cough, cold or upset stomach. Please tell us straight away, as your admission may need to be re-scheduled. The number to call will be on your letter.
Generally we ask that patients do not drink alcohol the day before admission and if they are a smoker, to stop smoking or cut down as much as possible, if having a general anaesthetic. We also ask that all nail varnish and gelish is removed from hands and feet before coming in for their procedure.
Items to bring on the day of admission
- All medication (in its original packaging) that you are taking
- Dressing gown, nightwear, underwear and slippers
- Books and/or magazines
- Any aids, such as glasses or hearing aid
Please don't bring
A lot of clothing or large amounts of money.
