Your Admission to the Glan Usk Suite

Pre-Admission Clinic

Staff in a patient suite
Should you need to undergo a surgical procedure or need to be admitted for tests you will be required to attend a pre-admission clinic on the Suite prior to being admitted.
A general health check and screening will ensure you are fit for surgery and an anaesthetic, if required.  A full MRSA screen will also be undertaken at this time to ensure a controlled infection environment.  Other tests that may be undertaken are ECG (heart trace), X-ray of chest or limbs and blood tests.
A senior nurse will conduct your pre-admission and you will be given information about your operation and time to discuss any concerns you may have with regards to your procedure, admission and hospital stay and what to expect during your post-operative convalescence.
A tour of the Suite is offered at this time should you require one.
A letter explaining this will be issued to you once your Consultant has confirmed your booking. 
The Glan Usk Suite offers daycase surgery accommodation and overnight accommodation for inpatients.  However, should you require a longer stay, accommodation can be afforded to you on the speciality ward relevant to your condition at a reduced price.
