Day of Surgery Admission (DOSA)

The Day of Surgery Admission Unit (DOSA) is a pre-operative waiting area where patients are prepared for the operation on the day of surgery. Here we will check you in and complete all the necessary paperwork and pre surgery documentation. When the time comes for your surgery you will go from DOSA to the operating department for your surgery. You will be contacted one day before surgery to confirm your admission.

Please see patient information leaflet on DOSA


As the hospital cannot provide a personal laundry service, please make suitable arrangements with relatives or friends.


For health safety and hygiene reasons, please do not bring food into the hospital.  Our Bakery and Restaurant provide food for our visitors. Our Catering Department provides food to our patients.

Day Ward Admissions

The Day Wards (such as Endoscopy, Cardiology, and Oncology) have arrangements specific to their elective admissions and you will be advised of these arrangements prior to admission.
