Surgery & Out Patient Treatments

Bill’s operating lists at The Three Shires Hospital are scheduled for alternate Monday mornings and the 1st, 3rd and 5th Thursdays in the month. Occasional lists will run at other times.

Any hospital admission will be coordinated by Bill’s Office team, and the Hospital’s Booking Office. You will be provided with written instructions concerning admission time and starving details.

Most patients will be required to undergo a Pre-Operative Assessment at BMI Three Shires Hospital by an Anaesthetist or a Nurse.

During your stay you will be looked after by a multi-disciplinary team comprising nurses, physiotherapists, and anaesthetists while remaining under the care of Prof Ribbans. You will be seen before surgery by Bill and his Anaesthetic colleague. Your post-operative in-patient care will be coordinated by Prof Ribbans.

Following discharge, Bill’s office will organize follow-up visits and liaise with you over other appointments such as Physiotherapy.
