Pre-Operative Assessment Unit

The Pre-Operative Assessment Service is based on the Edward Unit at Nottingham City Hospital and on Ward B50 at QMC. It covers Pre-Operative Assessment for a range of specialties. All adult patients planning to have an operation or surgical procedure under a general anaesthetic or spinal anaesthetic within any of thee specialties will be invited to attend a Pre-Operative Assessment.

The assessment is carried out before surgery to ensure:

  • Patients are fully informed about the procedure and their post-operative recovery
  • Patients' health is the best it can be before surgery
  • Suitable arrangements have been made for admission, discharge and post-operative care at home

The assessment will take place after the patient and their consultant have decided that an operation or procedure is necessary.
