To cut the long story short, I've been doing work experience and unfortunately wasn't able to get into the "Surgical Outpatients"
What is it exactly, and what do they do inside?

Long answer cut short- see the surgeon that specialises in his/her field. This can be pre /post op.

It's where patients go for their outpatient appointments. Outpatients are people who are not inpatients, though they probably have been or will be.

These patients are either having a check-up post-surgery or are being assessed/referred for surgery.

Imagine going to see your GP, except your GP is a surgeon.

I can talk about this because I saw an orthopaedic surgeon yesterday.

You go in the room and he discusses your progress regarding your current injury or illness. And that's pretty much it.

I've got a dislocated elbow and he pretty much went over x-rays to examine my progress, and inform me of what lies ahead. Thankfully I'll need no surgery but he'll monitor my progress to ensure I restore most of my range of motion.

just had a week in surgical outpatients, consultants discussing treatment with patients before or after surgery tbh.

When I went to a vascular outpatients clinic, it was entirely for new-patients so often it involves a lot of referrals from GPs who want confirmation or discarding of a diagnosis from a specialist in that area (essentially all I saw was lots of claudication and the odd potential aneurysm).
