Theatre & Recovery

The operating theatre and recovery room are pinnacle points in our patients’ surgical journey.
Within recovery, we care for all specialities requiring both immediate and extended post anaesthetic care. The recovery area serves all theatres and is the central hub point for the department. The team are dedicated in ensuring that all patients receive the best possible care on their journey through theatres.
As a centre of excellence for many specialities and an area which supports high risk obstetric patients to patients requiring robotic surgery, our recovery team are experts across a variety of specialities.
