Newlands Day Case Unit is the operating theatre service provided by KCH for Ophthalmology (Eyes), and Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery (Dentistry and skin). We provide General Anaesthetics for these specialities, as well as Local Anaesthetic as needed. We have capacity for up to nine general anaesthetic patients at a time; and we can take up to 20 local anaesthetics as well.
We have two operating theatres, where we perform a range of surgeries including cateracts, squints, eyelid correction, retinal surgery; as well as dental extractions, skin lesion removal, and minor reconstructive work on the head and neck.
Please be aware that we are not a walk-in service: all patients will be referred to us via Ophthalmology, or Oral and Maxillofacial outpatients.
