Will I need an ambulance to transport me home after my surgery? I have a long car journey to get home – is this OK? Can I fly home after surgery?

You will be able to travel as a passenger in a car following surgery however journeys of longer than an hour will need to be broken so that you are able to get out of the car and walk around.

You will also be able to fly home following surgery but you will require a “Travel Clearance Form” to be provided by ward staff prior to hospital discharge, please notify ward staff as soon as possible to arrange this.
