It’s in the best interest of your child to be supported by you or a caregiver before and after surgery.
We encourage you to remain with your child wherever possible. Many anaesthetists allow you to accompany your child into the anaesthetic room until they are asleep.
You can wait in the Day Surgery sitting area while your child is in theatre. If you need to move away from this area, please keep your mobile phone on and with you in case you need to be contacted.
The nurses can call you when your child has returned to the Post Anaesthetic Care Unit (PACU) and has been woken from the anaesthetic.
For more information, please see the PACU Parent Information sheet.
