If you are scheduled to have surgery (except endoscopy procedures) you must call 02 4320 2117 for Gosford Hospital or 02 4394 7599 for Wyong Hospital between 2pm and 4pm the last working day before your surgery, Monday to Friday (except public holidays).
If your surgery is scheduled for a Monday you will need to call on the Friday before. The nurse will confirm your details, your specific admission time and provide advice on fasting requirements, medications, what to bring and what not bring to hospital and answer any questions or concerns that you have.
Important: You must NOT drive for 24 hours after your operation. If you are having a day only procedure you need to arrange for someone to take you home when you are discharged from hospital and stay with you overnight (if there are no other adults at home). You must make your transport and carer arrangements before the day of your surgery.
