What should I do before my operation?

If you are having a general anaesthetic or local anaesthetic and sedation, you should fast (nothing to eat or drink) for at least 6 hours before your operation. All patients should have had a bath or shower on the evening or morning before surgery.

Please do not wear make-up or nail varnish on the day of your appointment, nor bring valuables or expensive jewellery.
