How long will I be at the bpas clinic?
This very much depends on your particular treatment. Click here to read about your specific treatment.

Can I bring someone along with me?
We’re happy for you to bring someone along if it helps you. Space is a little limited though, so please make sure it's only one person.

There aren't any facilities for children at our clinics so please make arrangements for childcare if necessary.

If you are under 16
You will need an adult (someone who is 18 or over) to escort you home after your treatment. We are happy for a female adult to stay with you throughout your treatment with us.

Essential things to bring:

  • any prescribed medicines or inhalers
  • stick-on sanitary towels
  • extra underwear

Arriving at the clinic for your treatment
Once you have checked in with the receptionist, your name and date of birth will be checked and you will be asked to go into a waiting room. A nurse will collect you and ask if you would like your support person to accompany you through this stage. The nurse will make sure that all your paperwork is complete and accurate. Your medical history will be confirmed.

What about my support person during my treatment?
If you are under the age of 16 a female support person can stay with you if you wish. Please discuss this with your nurse.

You will have a bpas support person with you throughout your treatment. We will also keep your own support person up to date with your progress if you wish and you will be reunited with them as quickly as possible.
