Admissions to Arrowe Park Hospital

Your day will start in the Surgical Elective Admissions Lounge (SEAL). This can be found at the back of the hospital. If you are accessing SEAL by car, please follow the directional signs to the rear of the hospital. We have a drop off point at SEAL but there is no parking. There is limited space in the reception area so we would ask that friends and relatives drop patients off at SEAL and then leave.

On arrival please report to the reception desk. Your details will be checked before you take a seat in the main reception area. After you have registered you will be seen by a member of the nursing staff, your consultant and a member of the anaesthetic team. If you have not already done so, you will be asked to sign your consent form. Please use this opportunity to ask any outstanding questions you may have about your operation.

You will wait in a dedicated male or female lounge. There will be a member of the nursing staff on hand to deal with any questions or queries. If you have brought any belongings with you, these will be labelled by the lounge staff and taken to the ward where you will be taken following your operation.
