Day Surgery Procedures

Description

The Day Surgery unit consists of 18 beds with 2 major theatres and 1 minor theatre. The unit admits patients who are booked for a planned day surgery procedure. They are discharged on the same day and may require a bed or trolley for a period prior to discharge. These procedures may be either minor or intermediate, requiring sedation, local anaesthetic or general anaesthetic. Patients requiring general anaesthetic have their procedure done in main theatre but are cared for pre and post operatively in the day surgery unit.
