Central to this is your understanding of the nature of your operation, what I am trying to achieve for you and the complications which can occur.

I will try and give you as much information as you need and want to have, so that you can make the decision whether to proceed with your procedure/operation.

Once you are placed onto the waiting list you can find advice on the next steps here.
