Once you and your specialist have decided to have your treatment at Braemar Hospital, your specialist will discuss the date and time of admission with you.
Your specialist will also provide you with an estimate of our costs.
Your specialist will give you a pre-admission form for you to complete either online or a paper form. Once completed please forward it to us as soon as possible. If you have any special requirements, such as dietary needs, please let us know by indicating this on your pre-admission form, or by phoning us before admission.
If you are having an anaesthetic, you will also receive an information book on anaesthesia.
Before your hospital stay, it is a good idea to plan ahead for your return home and your return to good health. Your specialist will discuss how long your recovery period will be so you can think about what support and help you will require at home. If extra support is required by you, we can arrange referrals to external agencies as appropriate.
Planning for discharge is especially important if you are having day surgery as you must have someone at home with you for at least the first 24 hours, or longer if your specialist advises.
If you have any questions before admission, or cannot find the information elsewhere in these pages, please contact us.
