The Pre-operative service will:

  • Assess your health and fitness before surgery
  • Provide advice on your medicines before surgery
  • Give you information about your hospital stay

Pre-Operative Health Questionnaire:

CLICK HERE to complete your pre-op health questionnaire (Synopsis iQ)

  • It is important to complete this before your operation
  • The process usually takes 15-20 minutes
  • Please have details of your height, weight, and usual current medications to hand
  • You will need your unique hospital number to complete the questionnaire which can be found on any letter sent to you by the Trust

Based on the results of this you will either:

  • Attend hospital for some routine tests before surgery (i.e. infection screening and blood tests)
  • Have an appointment to discuss your health with a pre-op nurse either by phone or in a fact to face appointment
  • Have an appointment to discuss your health with an anaesthetist and a pre-op nurse

A formal appointment with a pre-op nurse or anaesthetist usually takes 30-60 minutes.

Certain patients will need preoperative blood tests and a heart tracing (ECG) before surgery. This will be arranged for you.

We are a countywide service. Where possible appointments will be made closest to your home. Occasionally it may be necessary for you to travel to a further site.
