Getting Ready for Surgery

Hunter New England Local Health District's Get Ready for your surgery booklet aims to help you to plan for your hospital stay ahead of your scheduled surgery. The booklet provides information on what to do and what to expect before and after your surgery. It also includes things you can do now to improve your health in preparation for your surgery.

Should you decide you need a paper copy, the booklet is easily printable at home. Your local hospital also has copies of this booklet they can provide you with if required.
