Pre-admission is an important part of your care at Stonnington Day Surgery as it ensures we are prepared for your visit.

Please download and complete the pre-admission and registration/consent forms and email them to Alternatively your surgeon may have given you the paperwork at consultation, please complete and ensure we receive it a week prior to surgery where possible.

Our staff will contact you the day prior to surgery to advise admission and fasting times as well as any out of pocket expenses.

If you are having a general anaesthetic or sedation, it is very important you have made arrangements for a family member or friend to collect you from Stonnington Day Surgery and stay with you overnight. It is preferable that the person collecting you is the person looking after you at home so the nursing staff can provide detailed education for post-operative care including medication regime.

If you develop an illness prior to surgery such as a cold or cough please contact your Doctor and the staff at Stonnington Day Surgery as soon as possible. We will need to assess whether your surgery needs to be postponed.
