The anaesthesia consultation room is situated on the upper ground floor level (RDC Haut) at the Polyclinique du Parc, next to Reception.


Consultations can take place Monday to Friday from 8h 00 to 12h 00 and from 13h 45 to 17h 30. Two doctors are available for consultation every day.

In about 60 % of cases, the consultation will be with the anaesthetist who will administer the anaesthetic. The sooner you make the appointment for the consultation, the more likely it is to be the same anaesthetist at the consultation and at surgery.

Also bring your most recent prescriptions. When you make the appointment for your consultation, you will be given the anaesthetic questionnaire to fill in.
