Having an anaesthetic
When you come to Kidderminster, you will have an anaesthetic. This may be because you are having some teeth taken out or you are having a small operation.
While the doctors are at work, you will be fast asleep and won't feel a thing.
We have put together some information about having an anaesthetic so that you know what to expect when you are admitted.
It is always a good idea to look through this information with your parents or carers, as they may be able to answer your questions and give you advice too.
We filmed this video at Kidderminster Treatment Centre to show what happens when you come into hospital for an anaesthetic.
If you are coming into hospital for an operation, you can find out more information from the websites below.
The Royal College of Anaesthetists has good downloadable and printable information about anaesthetics for children, young people and parents including.
