Pre-assessment clinic

The pre-assessment clinic is where a nurse reviews your general health.

This will include:

  • past medical history
  • any current medication
  • any tests, clinical observations or examinations
  • fitness for surgery

You will also have the opportunity to ask any questions.

Location of pre-assessment clinic

The pre-assessment clinic is based at Jersey General Hospital.

We'll contact you to arrange an appointment which take place from Monday to Friday. 

If you haven't received an appointment, contact the pre-assessment clinic on +44 (0) 1534 444299. 

Pre-operative assessments

A pre-operative assessment prepares you for surgery and is part of your care package. It reduces the risks associated with having anaesthesia and an operation.

You are given advice about fasting and medications to take before your operation.

You may receive written information about your surgery at the time of assessment.

You may also need to see a consultant anaesthetist if you:

  • have complex medical issues
  • are having a high-risk surgical procedure

You'll receive individual invoices for any tests or medical reviews.

Preparing to come into hospital

Before you come into hospital, follow any instructions given to you by your consultant. You may also be asked not to eat or drink before your operation.

If you take medication early in the morning, ask your consultant if you should take it on the day of your operation.

You should bring the following items:

  • nightwear, dressing gown and slippers
  • comfortable clothing to wear towards the end of your stay
  • personal toiletries (we provide towels)
  • your completed admission form (if not already returned)
  • any medication you are taking in original labelled containers

Do not bring any valuables (we don't accept responsibility for valuables kept on the premises).
