Surgery School

Surgery School is a programme that can be attended before surgery. Currently it is only available to those patients having joint surgery or colorectal surgery. 

It involves a face to face group programme where you will be taught all about the steps to take before and after your surgery to help you recover more quickly and it will also cover: 

  • Different types of anaesthetics that may be available for your operation
  • Pain relief following surgery
  • How to take your medication before and after surgery
