Preparing for surgery

Prehabilitation before surgery with our Get Set 4 Surgery programme
Visit the page to book your place to the next weekly session and for information to help you prepare ahead of surgery www.stgeorges.nhs.uk/service/prehabilitation/
Prehabilitation is all about good preparation for your body and mind prior to surgery. In the time before your surgery, you can take simple steps to improve your physical and mental health. This will reduce your risk of complications and improve your wellbeing now and in your recovery.
Our face to face sessions are suspended during the Covid-19 pandemic. However, we are running our weekly classes live online, via Microsoft Teams. Please speak to your clinical team to be invited to one of our sessions, or email us on the email addresses further down this page.
We have put together some resources to help you make the most of the time you are waiting for your surgery. You can use this time to improve your health and wellbeing, so your surgical recovery is better- think of it as preparation time rather than waiting time.
