Recovery friends and relatives

We specialise in day case surgery and procedures so our recovery area is communal. The advantage of this is that you will have a nurse present, should you need them, throughout your whole recovery period. For the comfort of all, relatives are not able to wait in the communal recovery area. This is true in all but exceptional circumstances, such as when needed to act as an interpreter or assist with disabilities.

Relatives are very welcome to wait in the reception area, where there are tea and coffee facilities, and a selection of magazines and papers. Alternatively, they may wish to walk into the nearby city for refreshments and shopping, or go home. We will call them when you are ready to be discharged.

Patients may be offered light refreshments after their procedure which will have been pre-ordered. There will be a choice of sandwiches and hot drinks. Your nurse will take your sandwich order prior to your treatment. If you have any food allergies please inform a member of staff before ordering.
