Each nurse will provide a full handover at the end of their shift to the next nurse in charge of your care, so they are always fully informed.

Our theatres are fully equipped with the latest technology and our theatre team is highly experienced in all aspects of elective surgery from minor day-case procedures to complex surgical interventions.
Infection control and our attention to cleanliness are top priority, and a dedicated hygiene team ensures that infection rates are extremely low. This team is overseen by our Matron to ensure we maintain the highest standard.
Our consultants have all fulfilled rigorous eligibility criteria and each one is also registered with the appropriate professional organisation for the area in which they specialise. They will lead your care, providing a careful and individual treatment plan from surgery through to recovery.

Resident medical officer (RMO)
Each Nuffield Health Hospital has an RMO who is a doctor which stays on site at the hospital 24 hours a day. Whilst your consultant is responsible for your care, it is impossible for them to be on site 24 hours a day. The RMO will be on hand to assist any consultant and/or nurse caring for you. We hope this helps put your mind at ease.
