Day Care Unit / Day Case Patients

What to bring

  • Your appointment letter
  • Any medications you are taking (including inhalers)
  • Dressing gown/slippers
  • Something to read/do while waiting
  • Wear loose fitting clothes & cotton underwear (not nylon)

Getting ready

  • Take any prescribed medication in the morning, unless told otherwise
  • Have a bath/shower
  • Don't wear makeup, nail varnish or jewellery (except a wedding ring)
  • Please leave your jewellery/valuables at home (the hospital cannot be responsible for them)
  • There will be a free telephone for you to contact your escort.
  • You many need some money for presciptions/medications - normal NHS prescription charges apply.

Due to lack of space in the Day Care Unit, we would be grateful if you bring only one friend or relative with you. Whilst children can accompany your escort to and from the Day Care Unit, we ask that they do not stay in the Unit for the duration of your stay.
