Enhanced recovery programme

The aim of our enhanced recovery programme is for patients to be well enough to return home sooner after their surgery.

The programme will encourage you to be an active participant in your own recovery process. We will work closely with you, your family and other health care professionals in order to aid a speedy recovery from your operation, as well as a safe and timely discharge.

We currently use the enhanced recovery programme with:

  • elective hip and knee replacements
  • colorectal surgery
  • upper gastrointestinal surgery
  • hepatobiliary surgery
  • gynaecology surgery
  • urology surgery 
  • thoracic and cardiovascular surgery.                

If you have any questions regarding the enhanced recovery programme please contact one of our team.
