Pre-operative Assessment Team
Service contact information
The Pre-operative Team
The Pre-Operative Team consists of Nurse Practitioners, Consultant Anaesthetists and administration staff. The Pre-operative Team is based in the main outpatient department with the main Walton Centre building.
The Pre-operative Team have a centralised pre-op assessment service to assess patients undergoing neurosurgery, spinal surgery and interventional radiology. The purpose of pre-operative assessment is to determine patient fitness for anaesthesia and surgery, and to optimise patients prior to elective surgery.
When the decision to treat is made you will be given a MyPreOp patient card detailing your hospital's contact information and concise instructions on how to create your account and access the assessment programme. Here you will complete a comprehensive assessment of your general health and medical history. Please aim to provide us with as much information as possible as this will help us to determine what investigations you may need prior to your procedure.
If for some reason you are unable to complete the online assessment then we can invite you into hospital to complete it.
Once completed we will the review the completed assessment and contact you regarding the next steps. You maybe invited in for some routine investigations, you might need to be reviewed by a pre-op practitioner, this all depends on your medical history or the type of surgery you are having. Patients with complex medical conditions are seen in a high-risk anaesthesia clinic.
