Private post-operative care in the UK

post-operative care

Also known as step-down care or convalescence, post-operative care is for patients who need a stopover between hospital and home, having had surgery, or after treatment for acute or chronic medical conditions.


This gives patients an opportunity to heal and regain independence and be confident enough to return home. As part of a planned recovery, a stay at a specialised post-operative care facility can result in an earlier discharge from hospital.


Following orthopaedic surgery you may need to gain strength, mobility and confidence before returning home. Treatment might include intensive physiotherapy and, if appropriate hydrotherapy, enabling patients to get back on their feet as soon as possible.


The following hospitals and clinics provide detailed information about their UK post-operative care, step-down care and convalescence services on our site.
