Colorectal Surgery

If an operation is required, it can be arranged immediately, for the first mutually convenient date for you and your Surgeon.  Surgery, under general Anaesthetic, takes place at a Partner Hospital – The London Bridge Hospital and our staff will make the booking for you.

The Partner Hospital is recognised by all medical insurance companies, however it is important that you confirm with your insurers that the hospital is included among those covered by your policy.  Each patient is given a full estimate of the professional fees for the surgery, including anaesthesia and an indication of the length of inpatient stay required.

Hospital Admission

You will be admitted to the hospital on the morning of the operation.

On admission, a hospital administrator will ask for contact information and confirm your method of payment (insurance details etc). Insured patients should bring insurance company and policy details with them. 

Once admitted to your room a nurse will confirm your personal details, answer any questions concerning hospital procedures and attach a bracelet to your wrist with your name and hospital number.

Pre Surgery

Any further investigations, such as blood tests or X-Rays requested by your Consultant Surgeon will be undertaken.

The Consultant Surgeon will visit both, before and ask the patient to sign a Consent form for the operation and again after the operation. 

The Consultant Anaesthetist may also make a pre-operative visit to ask relevant questions and explain the method of anaesthesia and will also visit again post-operation.
