Day procedures and surgery can be more difficult than they seem.
Did you know, for instance, that:
- Admission can take up to three hours.
- A general anaesthetic means you can’t drive for 24 hours or be picked up by taxi: someone must collect and stay with you.
- All surgery is painful and can affect normal functioning. Health and safety depend on appropriate, timely help.
To remove stress and risk, Call on Clare provides full pre- and post-surgery support.
We can help prepare patients for admission and organise their bag, medication and paperwork.
Our nurses know where to go, who to talk to, and how to fill forms.
They stay with a patient until admission is complete and hospital staff take over.
