Pre-Assessment Clinic (PAC)

Welcome to the Tayside Pre-Assessment Clinic (PAC) website where you will find information about the pre-assessment process as well as some general information to help you prepare for your operation and about your anaesthetic.
Patients are seen at the PAC because they have been listed for an operation. The aim of the pre-assessment process is to make sure you are as fit as you can possibly be for your operation, which helps to make your surgery as safe as possible.
There is a lot you can do to help yourself prepare for surgery and help you get back to normal more quickly. Click here for advice on keeping physically active, stopping smoking and weight management.
