Patients & Visitors

 The facility is designed to ensure a smooth journey for the patient from pre-admission to post discharge. Administration and nursing pre-admission is done within 48 hours of admission and a follow up phone call is made the next day following discharge. In many cases the patient will speak to and meet the same person. This gives the patient a feeling of comfort and they are reassured they will be treated and respected as an individual during their stay.

Overnight Stay

The overnight rooms are utilised Monday through Thursday and the majority of patients staying overnight are breast surgery patients. Many have had first stage breast reconstruction following mastectomy and are having secondary and revision procedures. The patient satisfaction results are excellent and are directly attributed to the friendliness, compassion and professionalism of the staff and the calm and comfortable surroundings. The windows are double glazed to reduce noise, the rooms have a television for each patient and meals are served when the patient requests and not when the facility decides it is meal time.

Patients often have the same surgeon and similar procedures therefore they have someone to talk to about their experiences, anticipations, emotions and expectations. They may also meet up in the surgeon’s rooms at their post operative visit giving them a chance to “reconnect”. The 2 night staff nurses provide skilled and experienced care overnight. 

Discharge the following day is between 8-9am.

After Your Procedure

  • Following your procedure you are taken to recovery for monitoring.
  • Length of stay following your procedure varies between 1-4 hours.
  • Local anaesthetic patients are able to go home immediately after the procedure however, your Surgeon may request you stay for a short time afterwards. If so, you will be taken to the discharge lounge and offered light refreshments.

  • Your relative or escort will be contacted to pick you up.
  • Upon discharge the Nurse will explain the post-operative instructions to you and your escort.
  • Your follow-up appointment is always at your surgeon’s rooms.
