Your stay in hospital
You are an inpatient if you are staying in hospital overnight or for more than one night.
You may need to stay at one of our hospitals to have a procedure or receive treatment, either overnight as an inpatient or during the day as a day patient. If your stay is planned you will receive a letter with the date you need to come to hospital (your admission date), as well as any information you need to know before your procedure. If you have any questions about your admission date, please call the phone number on your letter.
See our planned procedures and surgery page for more information.
