Preparing for hospital

On your day of admission, please arrive at the time given to you by the pre-admission nurse.
The nurse will also advise you of where to come.

Please note: arriving early does not necessarily mean you will be admitted earlier. Patient admissions are prioritised based on the surgeon’s operating list.

Personal preparation

Please shower on the day of your admission, before coming to hospital. Ensure you do not wear talcum powder, jewellery, perfumes or makeup.

Wear garments that are comfortable and easy to remove including comfortable shoes with a non-slip sole.
