Contact number:   01772 522922, 01772 522072

What is Pre-Operative Assessment?

Before your operation we need to make sure that you are fit and healthy for an anaesthetic.

Our aims in the Pre-Operative Assessment Clinic:

  • To assess how fit you are for surgery and anaesthetic
  • To ensure that you will be in the best health prior to the operation.
  • To help reduce your worries and concerns
  • To provide information about your admission to hospital, your length of stay and your discharge date.

Opening times and location:

The unit is open from 08:00 until 18:00 (Monday – Friday) and is based at Royal Preston Hospital on the corridor named Burgundy Street.

How long will it take?

Please allow up to 2-3 hours for your pre-operative assessment clinic appointment. We will advise you on arrival of any potential delays.
