Welcome to the
Perioperative Assessment Clinic (PACs)
The Perioperative Assessment clinic is an outpatient service dedicated to preparing you for your upcoming day surgery, anaesthesia, admission and discharge. I am committed to making your Pre-Admission Assessment visit as positive an experience as possible and tailored specifically for you.
All patients, > 12 years, are pre-assessed for their suitability for day surgery undergoing general anaesthesia / regional anaesthesia.
The Perioperative Assessment clinic is for all patients >12 years undergoing general anaesthetic / regional anaesthesia for day surgery.
Located on the first floor via the main hospital entrance. The most convenient way to get to the Unit is to go to the lifts or stairs in the main hospital and follow the directions to the day surgery reception area.
