Day Case Appointments

Sanderson Suite, at St Helens Hospital, is our day case ward providing minor surgical procedures.

Important information for patients attending for day case surgery

  • ​If you cannot keep your admission date, please telephone the number on your admissions letter as soon as possible. We may be able to treat another patient in your place.
  • Due to limited space on the day wards, we ask relatives not to stay with the patient. The ward will telephone relatives/carers to pick you up
  • You should remove all make up and nail polish
  • Children under 16 years must be accompanied by an adult

What to bring to hospital

  • Your admission letter
  • Any change to your personal details e.g. GP, address, telephone number

We also suggest that you bring the following items to make your time with us as comfortable as possible:

  • Any pills or medicines that you are taking
  • Spectacles, hearing aids etc.
  • Books/magazines
  • Telephone number of the person who will be collecting you

Please do not bring valuables or large sums of money.

A patient information booklet for day patients will be sent to patients along with their appointment letter and will provide further information for patients about their admission.
