MyPreOp LA is an intuitive preoperative assessment program that patients complete remotely via computer, tablet or smart phone. It allows rapid deployment into healthcare settings and can be run alongside current IT systems.

MyPreOp LA is one of the products in the Ultraprep suite and is used in the preparation of a patient for an operation or procedure under local anaesthetic.

The specific types of operations/procedures are:

  • Cataract operation
  • Other eye operation
  • Hernia repair
  • Skin operation
  •  Lump/bump removal
  •  Biopsy
  •  Vasectomy

Patients create an Ultramed account using their personal details and unique NHS number, then complete a comprehensive assessment via a user-friendly interface. Once patients have completed MyPreOp LA, they share their data with the healthcare provider performing the operation, generating a detailed digital output and a ‘Clinical Summary’ report. This information is then reviewed by a registered nurse or a qualified member from the preoperative assessment team.

The Clinical Summary report automatically highlights any areas of concern, suggesting further investigations and enabling a greater focus to be directed at high risk patients. This makes MyPreOp LA a powerful screening program. The latest version of MyPreOp LA includes the NICE Guidance from 2016. A new feature has been introduced which is the automation of the ICD10 Codes to optimise income.


Supports and enhances the perioperative medicine pathway. It
allows rapid screening and assessment of low risk patients allowing
resources to be focused on high risk patients.


Improves Referral to Treatment Time (RTT) pathway. MyPreOp LA
enhances efficiency by indentifying tests required allowing better
planning and throughput of patient operations. It also reduces length
of patient stay through better discharge planning.

With MyPreOp LA, pre operative assessment units can work more efficiently by focusing registered nurses time on clinical decision making rather than data collection. 

When the ‘decision to treat’ is made the patient is given a light blue MyPreOp LA patient card including the hospital details & contact information. The patient’s identification label, including their NHS number, is stuck to the front of the card in the space provided. The card gives concise instructions to access the assessment program.

The patient then completes MyPreOp LA, the Clinical Summary report is reviewed in the preoperative assessment unit and any tests are organised if required. Patients with complex co-morbidities or having complex surgery are rapidly identified as they will still require a face-to-face consultation with the nurse.
