For surgery at St. Joseph's Hospital

Directions and Contact

The focus of the clinic is to ensure patients are safely and well-prepared for their upcoming operation and that the day of the surgery runs smoothly.

The Pre-Surgical Screening Unit staff prepares you for surgery by:

  • Assessing your medical fitness for surgery and anaesthesia before your operation and arranging tests and consults if needed. Any tests and/or assessments ordered by your surgeon must be completed before your surgery. This allows time for your surgeon to review results and prevent last-minute delays or cancellations
  • Providing you with important before-and-after surgery instructions
  • Answering your questions

If you live outside of London, the Pre-Surgical Screening Unit will let you know if testing can be done in your area.
