Important pre and post surgery patient information

Helpful documents to support you through your surgery

If you are booked in for surgery, please click on the blue links below to view helpful documents that will explain what to expect before, during and after your procedure.

Pre-Surgery Documents

Please take time to ready our helpful Pre-Operative Advice Leaflet which provides guidance on what to expect during your surgical procedure.

You will also need to complete two forms prior to your operation, so it would be good to read them before hand, which are:

1) Pre-Operative Assessment Form

2) Patient Consent form for Minor Surgery.

It would also be helpful to print and bring these to your appointment, but not essential as we will have copies ready.

Post Surgery Documents

Below are two documents with helpful information to support you post operatively.

What to expect after your skin surgery procedure and how to take Post Operative Care Leaflet

Helpful guidance on Post Operative Wound Care Advice

If you have any other questions or concerns, please do contact us using the form, email or phone number below.
