For adult patients attending the Day Patient Suite, we suggest you bring comfortable clothing and sensible shoes to wear home. As for children, please bring in their favourite toys, and bottles and formula for those unable to take normal milk. We also encourage parents to remain with their child while they are in the Day Surgery Suite.
We also suggest that day procedure patients not drive their car until the next day, as your car insurance may not cover you in case of an accident. In addition, St Andrew’s Hospital advises patients not to drink alcohol on the day of procedure. Rest assured that the staff will advise you of any other restrictions prior to your discharge.
Please ensure that you have organised a responsible person to pick you up from hospital and someone to remain with you overnight: this is for your safety.
