Once you’ve checked in with reception you’ll be asked to wait in our waiting area until you are called to theatre. While you are waiting you will be called into a consultation room in the waiting area to complete the necessary paperwork.
Relatives/friends are more than welcome to wait in the Reception area with you until you are called to theatre. They can also receive updates from the reception staff or contact us on 0121 685 4080. We also have a restaurant on site where they are more than welcome to wait.
