Information for Health Professionals - Surgery at Prince of Wales Hospital

The preoperative period is an opportunity to teach patients how to optimise their health. This improves their perioperative outcomes and also improves their long-term health.

Please share this letter with your patient to optimise their health for surgery. The South Eastern Sydney Local Health District Health Pathways is currently producing a resource to assist GPs with preoperative optimisation.  Our site will be further updated once this resource is live.

The POWH Anaesthesia Pre-Evaluation Clinic (APEC) values the vital role that GPs play in preparing patients for surgery.
