Medications & Your Health

If you are on medication you should continue to take your medication with a minimal amount of water unless otherwise instructed by your doctor or by staff at the San Day Surgery Hornsby.

Cold or Illness

Please contact the San Day Surgery Hornsby or your doctor if you develop a cold or illness prior to surgery.


You should cease smoking as soon as possible (at least 24 hours) prior to your surgery. Smoking can seriously effect your anaesthetic and increases the likelihood of complications.

The San Day Surgery Hornsby is a non-smoking environment. We ask that you and your visitors respect the health of others and refrain from smoking within our grounds.


For general and local anaesthetic patients, please shower prior to your admission to the San Day Surgery Hornsby.
