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. 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.

As Cambridge Day Surgery is a 23-hour facility, the majority of patients will be leaving a few hours after their procedure. As such we ask that where possible patients attend on their own to ensure we can limit overcrowding in the waiting room. Some patients may require a carer in attendance and this will be discussed at the pre-admission call for patients undergoing a procedure requiring a general anaesthetic or IV sedation. Patients undergoing a local anaesthetic procedure and who require a carer in attendance please call the day surgery prior to the day of the procedure to confirm so that we are aware.

At Cambridge Day Surgery we have 6 overnight beds for patients requiring an overnight stay. There are two beds to a room with each room having a shared ensuite. Patients booked for an overnight stay will be discharged early the following morning. With the short stay nature of these procedures and to assist with the privacy and comfort of all our patients we encourage overnight patients not to have visitors and to communicate with their loved ones via phone or messaging.

If a patient has a need to have some time with a close family member or carer, a short visit after surgery may be arranged with prior approval from the Director of Nursing or CEO. We request that this visit is limited to 1 person and less than 30 minutes, if there is another patient in the shared room your visit may be cut short.

Flower allergies are very common and can affect patients and hospital staff, Cambridge Day Surgery politely ask you not to bring your loved one flowers.
