Having surgery at UCLH: video guide for patients
Knowing what to expect from your surgery will not only help you plan and prepare for your admission to hospital, but will also help your recovery after your surgery.
There are different types of surgery that can vary in outcome and the days patients spend in hospital. The appointments and preparation, however, that patients go through before and after their surgery are very similar, regardless the surgery they have. Patients and staff at UCLH have helped put these short films together explaining to you, your family and friends what to expect from this process, if you are thinking about having surgery under the care of one of our hospitals. We hope you find this information useful.
