Having an operation is a major event in someone’s life and it’s normal to feel anxious about it.

Fitter patients who are able to improve their health and activity levels recover from surgery more quickly and with fewer complications. What you do in the time leading up to surgery can have a really big impact on your recovery and long term health.

Fitter Better Sooner resources will provide you with the information you need to become fitter and better prepared for your operation. Please click on the links below to download the leaflets and view the animation.
