Day Case Appointments
Sanderson Suite, at St Helens Hospital, is our day case ward providing minor surgical procedures.
Important information for patients attending for day case surgery
- If you cannot keep your admission date, please telephone the number on your admissions letter as soon as possible. We may be able to treat another patient in your place.
