The Adult Day Surgery Unit (ADSU) specialises in the care of patients having a surgical procedure as a day case across General Surgery, Orthopaedics and Urology. The Unit runs between Mondays and Saturdays each week and closes at 20:00 daily.
Within the Adult Day Surgery Unit patients are cared for in single-sex bays. Each single-sex bay has a designated single-sex toilet and a sink adjacent to the bay.
Patients will be given information about their admission at their 'Fit for Surgery' or pre-operative assessment appointments.
