Elective Admissions Lounge

Ward details

The elective admissions lounge is a pre-operative area where patients are admitted and prepared for their operation on the day of the surgery.

Your surgeon and anaesthetist will come and see you and answer any questions you may have about your surgery, pain relief, the risks and benefits of the planned procedure and signing your consent form.

A nurse escorts patients from the lounge to the operating theatre.  Following their operation, patients go to a post-operative ward to recover.
