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.
You will be told this when you make the booking – it depends on whether you are having your consultation and treatment on the same day. Actual timescales will depend on the type of appointment that is booked.
During the Covid-19 outbreak we regret that you cannot bring an escort with you unless:
There are no facilities for children so please make arrangements for childcare. However, if that is difficult for you please inform the advisor when booking the appointment.
Remember to bring:
A female adult of your choice can stay with you throughout your treatment and you need an adult (aged 18 or over) to take you home when it is finished - if this is difficult for you, please tell the clinic at the earliest opportunity so that your treatment can be provided safely.
You will have a BPAS support person with you throughout treatment. We will also keep your own support person up to date with your progress if you wish and you can rejoin them as quickly as possible if you prefer. More information for under 16s.
