Operation info goes digital

A NEW digital tool is being introduced by NHS Dumfries and Galloway to handle pre-op assessments for children.

My Pre-Op is already employed for adults and allows people to complete necessary documentation electronically ahead of an operation.

Senior charge nurse Sally Walton said: “Ahead of an operation, people typically need to complete documentation and answer some questions. This can be done on paper, in the form of a face-to-face meeting.

“However, as with so many aspects of life, electronic means of communicating can for many people be a much faster, more convenient and helpful option.”

Anyone whose child requires an operation and a pre-operative assessment will be advised that this will come to them via Ultramed, and they can help with any questions.
