MySurgery is an app supported by NHS organisations and designed to help patients get the best possible outcome from their surgery.
Surgical care is complex and by using this app you can learn how to avoid risk before, after and during your operation (whatever you’re having done) in a simple, jargon-free and step by step manner. Whether it's you having the operation or someone you know, use this animated app to find out how to prepare for surgery, what to expect from your care, the warning signs to look out for, what information to provide and the questions to ask.
MySurgery was created by healthcare professionals, safety experts and patients working together, and it encourages your involvement in the care you receive. By following all of the steps you will proactively help to optimise your outcome, recovery, safety and satisfaction.
- MySurgery categorises the actions you should take in a simple and easy to follow manner, highlighting what you should DO, ASK, CHECK and INFORM at each stage of your surgery.

Ratings and Reviews
Good app which goes a long way to meeting my needs
This app makes essential reading for anyone about to undergo surgery. This is always a difficult time and during the run up to the oh day it is often difficult to think straight. So having something like this to have all of the information, reminders and prompts to hand is a real help. My big day is now less than a week away and MySurgery is playing a bigger and bigger part of each day as I try to keep myself organised and properly prepared to ensure everything goes a smoothly as possible. The favourites feature is great for making your own priority list. The only change I would like to see here is the ability to add individual bullet points in a page to my favourites list as opposed to the whole page. Just a small criticism to make it a bit more bespoke. Other than that, if you have surgery looming get this app and use it. It will help you.
No information about return to work
This is a good app and good resource to the point of discharge. It would be very useful to add more information on the evidence based recovery times and return to work along with timings. I like the layout and graphics though it does require the user to skip through a lot of steps to get to the later points.
Well designed and informative
