Admission to hospital

When you arrive, visit the Admissions Desk on the ground floor  of the Main Building. Our admission team will help you to complete your paperwork and check that your details are correct. You will then be directed to the Day Procedure Unit on Level 2 of the main hospital. To avoid your procedure being cancelled, make sure you have followed the preparation instructions given to you during your pre-admission appointment. Don’t forget that you must organise a support person to pick you up after your procedure.
