Day Surgery
Day surgery is surgery that is completed in one day, and does not require you to stay in hospital overnight. Generally, you will need to arrive at the hospital several hours before your operation is scheduled.

If you are scheduled for a day surgery procedure, you must ensure you have a responsible adult to pick you up after your procedure and that you are not left alone for at least 24 hours after your procedure.

You will not be allowed to drive home yourself after your procedure

Day of Surgery
Day of Surgery requires you to be admitted the same day as your scheduled procedure, this is the case for most operations performed by Mr. Grills and Dr. McLeod.

After your operation you will be transferred to a surgical ward to stay overnight or longer if required. During this time your surgeon and the nursing team will look after you and provide you with appropriate post operative care until you are well enough to go home.

Day Before Surgery
You may be required to be admitted to a surgical ward one or two days prior to your scheduled surgery. This will usually only occur if you require treatment prior to your procedure.
