Orthopaedic admissions suite
The pre-surgery admission suite at Cheltenham General Hospital cares for patients having orthopaedic procedures. You can find us in the College Road wing of the hospital.
We will send you pre-admission guidelines to prepare for your surgery, which you should follow before the day of your admission.
What to expect
When you arrive at the suite, you will:
- speak to a consultant or doctor
- speak to anaesthetist, who will explain the anaesthetic and how they care for you during your surgery
- meet a member of the surgical team, who will explain your procedure and ask you to sign a consent form
You may go to a ward after your surgery if you need to stay in the hospital overnight.
Food and drink
We have two restaurants at Cheltenham General Hospital, for anybody who accompanies you during your visit.
