You will receive a letter from the Admissions Department confirming your name has been placed on the surgical waiting list. This letter will include a Preoperative Assessment Pack containing a:
- Medical Questionnaire
- Consent Form and
- Information on your surgical procedure
Please complete and return the Medical Questionnaire immediately, as failure to do so will delay surgery. Responses help us assess your health and surgical suitability and highlight potential risks.
Upon receipt of the completed form, a member of the Preoperative Assessment Clinic will contact you to discuss the information provided and arrange a Preoperative Assessment, if necessary.
Admission Date Confirmation
Once you are approved for surgery by the Preoperative Assessment Clinic, you will receive advance notice of your date for surgery. In addition, you will be given a sample Surgical Consent Form to review. You do not need to sign and return this form; another will be provided for your signature on admission. Upon receipt of this letter, you must contact the Hospital to confirm your intention to attend. Failure to do so will result in the cancellation of your appointment. To confirm attendance or reschedule a surgical appointment, please contact the Admissions Department:
+353 (1) 814 0334
This is an answering service only. Please confirm your name, patient reference number or date of birth and leave a short message indicating if you can attend for surgery on the proposed date. If you cannot attend, we will propose an alternative date for attendance.
Admission Date Reminder
A further letter will issue shortly before admission providing the following information:
- Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon who will perform your surgery
- Details of your procedure
- Admission date and time
- Hospital charges
- Preoperative Instructions: relating to medication, fasting (if required), items to pack, and other advice relevant to your procedure and hospital stay.
