You will be given an anaesthetic when you have surgery, this will put you to sleep so that you don’t feel pain during your operation. There are different types of anaesthesia and the type you receive will depend on the type of surgery or procedure you are having and how long it will take. When your surgery or procedure is finished, you will be moved to a special recovery area where our trained experts will monitor your condition as you wake from the anaesthetic.
