One of the benefits of being treated at our hospital is the ‘one-stop-service’ of your outpatient appointment. Where possible we will complete any pre-treatment tests there and then, to save you making multiple trips, and our anaesthetists and rehabilitation team will assess you at the same time.

Your outpatient appointment is also an opportunity for you to meet the consultant who will perform your treatment. Feel free to ask any questions you wish – you may even want to write these down ahead of your appointment. They will explain any special preparations you may need to make before your treatment.

On the day of your treatment, wear something light and comfortable, so you’re as relaxed as possible.

If you’ll be staying with us, you may want to bring personal toiletries, nightclothes, comfortable footwear, something to read, and any medication you routinely take.

When you leave the hospital after you’ve had your treatment, you’ll be given full details of your follow-up care. We will inform your GP that you’ve been discharged from the hospital, and day case patients are telephoned the day after their surgery to check that they are recovering well.

It’s crucial to rest and take care of yourself after your treatment.

If you have any worries or concerns, please call us at any time on our Patient Advice Line (0117 906 1900) to speak to a member of the clinical team. This helpline is designed to ensure that your recovery is as speedy and successful as possible, so please use it as much as you need to.

White Coat Syndrome’, also known as White Coat Hypertension or the White Coat Effect, describes a patient experiencing high blood pressure and anxiety when in a clinical situation.

The condition is not uncommon, with as many as 1 in 8 people experiencing White Coat Syndrome.

As well as being potentially upsetting for patients, higher blood pressure as the result of White Coat Syndrome can lead to procedures or treatments being postponed or cancelled where a higher blood pressure reading indicates a potential risk.

At Practice Plus Group Hospital, we will do all we can to help alleviate the symptoms associated with anxiety within these clinical situations, including:

  • Inviting patients who are affected by White Coat Syndrome to a tour of the hospital
  • Arranging for patients to meet the care team before their treatment
  • Offering quiet areas for blood pressure checks
  • Taking blood pressure readings several times throughout an appointment – often blood pressure lowers as the patient relaxes.

Knee replacement, Emersons Green – excellent care throughout

I had a uni-knee replacement operation on 20th February and six weeks later I am very pleased with it. I had excellent care throughout my stay and everything matched or exceeded my expectations. Although paying for it myself was daunting I am glad I had the op and the certainty of a set fee made it less worrying. I would recommend Practice Plus at Emersons Green to anyone else who can afford not to wait for an NHS operation.

Emersons Green – incredibly slick and super friendly

Despite the most huge system demand, strikes and winter pressures the NHS still carries on, so grateful to Practice Plus Group for looking after me yesterday. You were incredibly slick, super friendly and got the job done!

Knee surgery, Emersons Green – friendly and highly professional

October 2020 I had total knee replacement, NHS referral. My experience was excellent…everyone was caring, listening and very professional.
