Waiting for surgery

The information and advice here is aimed at helping you manage this wait so you arrive for your appointment in the best possible physical and mental health.

Your treatment may have conditions applied, such as quitting smoking, losing weight, being more active, reduce alcohol intake or some other kind of preparation.

In order to avoid any delay, you are advised to work on your overall health and wellbeing whilst you wait.  If you require any help or support with this, please contact your GP practice.

Any actions to improve your physical and mental health will best support your surgical journey and support the earliest recovery possible.
