Before you come into hospital

Pre-assessment clinics

Before coming into hospital you may be asked to attend a pre-assessment clinic.  You will see a doctor and/or nurse who will assess your condition.  Investigations such as blood tests, nasal swabs and X-rays may be done at the same time.  This is also an opportunity to ask questions and discuss any special needs. 

Your appointment

If you cannot attend the appointment/admission date offered for any reason, please let us know as soon as possible so that it can be offered to another patient.  Please use the contact number on your letter or telephone the hospital and ask for your ward/clinic.

Read your admission letter carefully as it will tell you what to do before you come into hospital.  Please follow any instructions carefully, or your treatment may be delayed.
