If you, or someone you know, is coming into Yeovil Hospital for surgery, you can now benefit from a new app to help make life easier.
The ‘Mysurgery Yeovil’ app has been developed in partnership with Imperial College London, and is designed to help our patients get the best possible outcome from their surgery.
The app tells you how you can prepare for surgery in a step-by-step, simple, jargon-free way. Whether you’re a prospective patient, relative or carer, you can use the animated app to find out what to expect from your care, the information you need to provide, useful questions to ask and any warning signs to look out for.
The app features:
- An easy-to-follow list of the actions a patient should take before and after surgery, using the simple headings ‘do’, ‘ask’, ‘check’ and ‘inform’
- The top 10 things to remember
- The opportunity to share your views via a quick survey to help improve care
- Links to further useful information.

(please note that this app is only available for iOS devices currently).
