Patient Information

North Shore Specialist Day Hospital is one of Sydney’s leading private Day Hospitals, and is a professional unit dedicated to your comfort, safety and care during day surgery procedures.


Things you need to know before your surgery. After your doctor has booked your procedure, you’ll need to complete and return the admission forms at least 72 hours before the day of surgery. You can do this online.
Things to do on the day. It’s important you fast for at least 6 hours before surgery, and arrange for a friend to collect you after the procedure. Check our guide on what to wear, bring, and general information on medications.
Take time to recover afterwards. Following an anaesthetic you won’t be able to drive for at least 24 hours, and you need to be able to rest. If you experience any problems after surgery, contact your surgeon immediately.
Information for your carer. We cannot admit patients unless you have an escort or carer to collect you after surgery. This guide will help your carer understand their role in your recovery.
