Having a test
The prospect of going into hospital for a surgical operation is inevitably daunting for everyone. Apart from the operation itself, being unsure just what to expect from your stay in hospital can be a worry. At The Lister Hospital you can depend on all of our staff to make the whole experience as comfortable and stress-free as possible. As part of this process, we believe that it will be of great help to you to have all the basic information about the preparations for your operation and the care you can expect afterwards, before you come into hospital.
Our aim is to create a caring environment, which will promote a speedy recovery. You will be looked after by a team of staff who are highly trained and dedicated. This includes your Consultant, supported by a range of other health professionals, to ensure your stay is as comfortable as possible. We encourage patients – and their relatives or carers – to get involved with their care at every point. Your nursing and medical team will discuss and plan your care with you and tell you what preparations need to be made before the treatment.
