Surgical Admissions and Day Surgery

Our Surgical Admissions and Day Surgery Unit is where our surgical admission patients are directed after initial registration on arrival to hospital.

This unit features a large welcoming waiting lounge with comfortable seating. The private consulting areas within this unit are used by our nursing staff to complete your admission paperwork and carry out your clinical assessment. These are also used by our surgeons and anaesthetists if they would like to speak with patients privately prior to surgery.

The Day Surgery Unit is located directly adjacent to the operating theatre complex. Once patients have recovered enough after surgery they are taken to the day surgery recovery areas. Private bays allow for patients to recover on a trolley until they are ready to sit in a recliner awaiting discharge home. Bathroom facilities are conveniently located in the unit.
