The Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust

Children's Day Surgery

We offer a wide range of different day case surgeries at Leeds Children's Hospital. Day case surgery means an operation or surgical procedure that does not involve an overnight stay. The patient is admitted on the day of surgery and usually goes home on the same day, a few hours after the procedure, once they have recovered sufficiently.

For day case surgery you could possibly be in for the whole day, this could be until 8pm at night.

The benefits of day case surgery include:

- Shorter stays in hospital
- Reduced risk of cancellation
- Shorter waiting times
- Care provided on a dedicated day case unit with expert staff
