Once you and your doctor have decided to have your treatment at Braemar Hospital, your doctor will discuss the date and time of admission with you and will confirm the admission date with us.

Your doctor will also provide you with an estimate of our costs.

Your doctor will give you a preadmission form for you to complete. Once completed please post it to us as soon as possible. If you have any special requirements, such as dietary needs, please let us know by indicating this on your preadmission form, or by phoning us before admission. We will do our best to meet your requirements.

If you are having an anaesthetic, you will also receive an information book on anaesthesia.

Before you come into hospital for treatment or surgery, it is important to plan ahead for your return home and your return to good health. Your doctor will give you a guide to how long your recovery period will be so you can think about what support and help you will require at home. If extra support is required by you, we can arrange referrals to external agencies as appropriate.

Planning for discharge is especially important if you are having day surgery as you must have someone at home with you for at least the first 24 hours, or longer if your doctor advises.

If you have any questions before admission, or cannot find the information elsewhere in these pages, please contact us.
