Nurse Making Notes

Post-Operative Care

Quality. And care

Your post-operative care begins as soon as you leave the operating theatre. I review all of my patients at the end of the day of surgery and am available overnight for questions or concerns. Those who were admitted overnight are reviewed again the following morning.

Your first post-operative check-up may be with your GP or family doctor - an invaluable partnership I rely on.

I will see you during the 6 week period following your operation. Your ongoing follow-up plan will depend on many factors, including your own recovery and the operation that you have had.
