Theatre Reception


Theatre reception is an admission lounge where patients are admitted on the day of their surgery (after having attended the Pre-Assessment Clinic where they are fully assessed).


The patient will meet members of the nursing, medical and surgical / anaesthetic team prior to their entry into the Theatre Department to ensure that all documentation is present and correct.  

Nursing staff ensure that all checks and aspects of preparation for surgery are completed.

Theatre reception encourages the patient to express any questions prior to entry into the Theatre Department.


Theatre reception staff is comprised of nursing, medical, surgical and anaesthetic staff with administrative support.
