Get Set 4 Surgery
Welcome to our information pages for the Macmillan and St George’s Cancer Partnership prehabilitation programme. This is a pilot programme being offered to all of our patients undergoing major cancer surgery here at St George’s. Our aim is to help our patients prepare for their forthcoming operation by improving both their physical and emotional wellbeing in order to improve overall recovery and outcomes.
We run these weekly sessions for patients and their chosen “plus one” to attend an afternoon of talks and discussions delivered by our team of in house specialists; anaesthetists, surgeons, physiotherapists, dieticians, psychologists and nurse specialists. We cover topics such as activity, nutrition, psychological support, what to expect before, during and after your hospital stay.
