Gallbladder Pathway - GP Pre-Operative Visit

One to two weeks prior to surgery, the patient visits their GP who checks that:

  1. The patient has received and read the Gallbladder Surgery information.

  2. The patient has given their consent for the direct access laparoscopic cholecystectomy pathway (see the surgeon and the anaesthetist on the day of surgery for the first time) and they have completed the consent form (usually done at the time of referral and is attached to the referral form).

  3. The patient has had recent FBC, Creatinine and Liver Function Tests.

  4. There are no medical concerns that could affect anaesthesia or surgery and the anaesthetic form has been completed.
