Making your surgery safer - for patients having surgery

When a patient is being prepared for an operation a number of checks will be carried out by various members of the surgical team to help make sure that the correct operation is carried out on the correct part of their body.

You will probably be asked several times to say which part of your body should be operated on. Please try to be patient with the people asking you. Checking several times is done to avoid mistakes that could harm you.
