I was disappointed that the information leaflet provided to me before my procedure was wrong. The leaflet explained - "If you have sedation, then for the next 24 hours you must not: drive any motor vehicle. This is a legal requirement not advice." - In fact this is only advice. The Road Traffic Act or any other Act does not set out the timings for driving after any sedation, procedure or medication, In fact, just because the anaesthetist says you can drive at any time you should only do so if you consider yourself fit and well to drive. I then reviewed the other information given. it was out of date, incomplete or simply wrong to my experience.
