Suite 1: Surgical Outpatients

Suite One Vision

Our aim in Suite One is to deliver an excellent delivery of care to each patient and their relatives.

We aim to ensure that each patient;

  • Is given individual care, according to the patient's needs and requests.

  • Is treated with sensitivity, maintaining confidentiality and dignity at all times.

  • Is offered a full explanation as to the treatment/procedure they are about to undertake.

  • Is given support and care throughout their stay and time to participate in any decision making, regarding their treatment/care.

  • Is treated with integrity and provided with an open, honest and informed approach.

We are a busy outpatient department with a variety of specialities which includes:

  • Vascular Surgery

  • Upper GI Surgery

  • Colorectal Surgery

  • Breast Surgery

  • Urology

  • Rheumatology

  • Respiratory

  • Inherited Cardiac Conditions

We also have genetics, neurologists and oncologists visiting from Sheffield Hospitals.

Patients are new referrals and follow-up patients, e.g. seen post surgery or for results of investigations.

Most specialities have Clinical Nurse Specialists and you may have an opportunity to spend time with them.

We also co-ordinate some oncology outpatient clinics on Cavendish Suite (chemotherapy department) and you may have the opportunity to visit there.

Please feel free to discuss anything in particular you are interested in observing and we will try to accommodate you.

Patient information leaflets are available for all procedures/surgery that patients may be booked for.
