Fasting

A Kensington Hospital Nurse will contact you prior to your admission to give you clear instructions of when to stop eating and drinking so you are ready for your procedure. For your safety during general anaesthesia or sedation, it is important that you follow these fasting guidelines. However, if your Surgeon/Specialist or Anaesthetist provides individual instructions and you are unsure, please contact our nursing team.
