Referral Process

Day Surgery

Types of patients regularly seen

The Day Surgery Unit at Bridgnorth Hospital sees patients that choose to come to Bridgnorth Hospital for a minor operation that can be conducted under a local anaesthetic. Patients are referred to the service by the GP or consultant.

There are a range of minor surgery procedures that are offered at the hospital, which mean that patients do not have to travel to acute hospitals that are further afield and they can be treated closer to where family, friends and carers live. Such procedures include:

  • cystoscopies
  • endoscopy diagnostic services
  • vasectomies

We also undertake day surgery operations in the following specialties:

  • general surgery
  • gynaecology
  • orthopaedics
  • podiatric (foot) surgery

Patients not seen by this service

The Day Surgery Unit does not undertake all types of operations. It does not undertake operations that require patients to have a general anaesthetic.
