If an operation is required, it can be arranged immediately, for the first mutually convenient date for you and your surgeon.  Surgery, under general anaesthetic, takes place at a partner hospital and The London Rectal Clinic staff will make the booking for you.  The partner hospital is recognised by all medical insurance companies, however it is important that you confirm with your insurers that the hospital is included among those covered by your policy.  Each patient is given a full estimate of the professional fees for the surgery, including anaesthesia and an indication of the length of inpatient stay required.

Patients are usually admitted to hospital on the morning of operation.  On arrival, a hospital administrator will ask for contact information and confirm your method of payment.  Insured patients should bring insurance company and policy details with them.  Once admitted to your room, a nurse will confirm your personal details and answer any questions concerning hospital procedures.  A bracelet is attached to each patient’s wrist with their name and hospital number.  Any further investigations, such as blood tests or x-rays requested by your consultant surgeon will be undertaken. 

Before the operation, the surgeon will visit, answer any further questions and ask the patient to sign a consent form for the procedure; he will visit again post-operatively.  The consultant anaesthetist will also make a pre-operative visit to ask relevant questions and explain the method of anaesthesia, he will also visit again after surgery.
