Going home

You should be able to leave on the same day as your surgery. You should make your own transport arrangements to get home. 

If you think you may need to be escorted home, please tell us in advance. 

We will give you:

  • Confirmation of the arrangements made for you, and telephone numbers you may need if you require further information

We may give you:

  • An appointment card if a doctor needs to see you in Outpatients
  • Two weeks’ supply of tablets, with a letter to your GP so that they can arrange a repeat prescription

You will have to pay for any medicines prescribed following your procedure. You may prefer to purchase pain killers from your local pharmacy before coming to hospital. If you are exempt from prescription charges, please bring proof.

Tell us how we are doing we'd love to have your opinion
