Preparation for your Anaesthetic
Haere mai! Your planned operation has now been booked and we would like to help you to be prepared for your upcoming anaesthetic. Please refer to your surgical letter which confirms which location (Auckland City Hospital or Greenlane Clinical Centre) has been allocated for your operation.
The information about your operation, and advice on how to prepare for it, is in the documents below. The specific advice is dependent on the location of your operation, so please be sure to select the correct document for your situation.
Take special note of when you need to stop eating and drinking, and if you have any special instructions regarding bloods tests or any routine medication.
Your experience is important to us, please speak with your Doctor or Nurse if you have any questions or concerns.
