Information for patients


If you are a patient, you will most likely have questions regarding the current outbreak. Please see the link below for guidance developed by the College along with The Faculty of Intensive Care Medicine, Intensive Care Society and Association of Anaesthetists.

You may have had your operation postponed. If so, you can use this as an opportunity to focus on preparing for your operation when it eventually takes place. Making lifestyle changes can help patients recover from surgery more quickly and with fewer complications.

In addition, keeping fit and maintaining a healthy lifestyle can help you cope with COVID-19 should you contract it.

Below are links to information on getting prepared for surgery and the importance of fitness and a healthy lifestyle during the pandemic.
