- How does a GP refer in to this service?
GPs need to refer a patient for a consultant review and the consultant will then decide on the appropriate day surgery option for the patient.

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:
- endoscopy diagnostic services
We also undertake day surgery operations in the following specialties:
- general surgery
- 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.
