A longer stay in hospital

For some operations or treatments, you may need to stay in hospital for a few days. Here’s what to expect if you stay for more than one day.

Before your stay

Your specialist organises your stay for you. You will get a letter that tells you when and where your appointment is. You go to the hospital once before your stay so that we can help you prepare.

Are you having an operation? Then you will have a ‘preoperative screening’ before your stay. During this screening, you will visit the nurse and the anaesthesiologist. There can also be blood tests, an ECG heart test or X-rays.
