Your arrival

Your arrival for your surgery

We look forward to welcoming you to our hospital.

When you arrive at Shore Surgery, you will be greeted at reception and then taken to the admission area for your procedure.

Your arrival for your surgery

Before your procedure please ensure any nail polish and make up is removed.

Your nurse will discuss the admission process with you and will make you feel as comfortable as possible.

Your nurse will then take your blood pressure, heart rate and temperature. They will also discuss any relevant medical information with you – i.e. allergies, medications and medical history.

You may be asked to change into a theatre gown and you may also be given a ‘pre-medication’ before going to the operating theatre. A ‘pre-medication’ is a tablet or tablets to relax you if you are nervous, or to help with your pain relief after the operation. Your nurse will then accompany you to the operating theatre.

Once your surgery is complete, our recovery room nursing staff will take care of you until you are ready to be collected by family or friend.

We welcome enquiries from you and your support people about your treatment at any time.
