Patients and visitors

Day patients

Day surgery, also known as a day case or day patients, refers to a minor surgery or investigative procedure that takes under six hours, and does not require an overnight stay.

For outpatient visits – such as consultations or diagnostic tests that don't require recovery time – please see our dedicated page.

Our Day Surgery Unit (DSU) provides specialist pre- and post-operative care for day surgery patients. You can expect to receive exceptional medical care in a calm and comfortable environment in our new Day Surgery Unit.

You will be looked after by a multidisciplinary team of doctors, nurses, and healthcare specialists.

If there's anything you need during your stay at Cromwell Hospital, please let us know and we will endeavour to accommodate it to make your time with us as comfortable as possible.
