Pre-Assessment Questionnaire

Completing Your Questionnaire

It is important you follow our recommendations on isolating between now and your admission. We recommend you to isolate for seven days prior to your procedure with the exception of having your Covid swab taken.

We are delighted that you have chosen Weymouth Street hospital for your operation. We would be grateful if you would spend a few minutes completing this questionnaire as soon as possible, which will be reviewed by our Pre-assessment Nurse.

Failure to complete this questionnaire may result in your procedure being cancelled one the day. The Pre-assessment Nurse will liaise with your consultant anaesthetist to decide whether any further tests or investigations are needed, and to ensure your anaesthetic is the safest possible.

If you have any questions, please contact the Pre-Assessment Nurse on 0203 075 2338.
