Once you have signed in with the receptionist at Purley Elective Centre, you should take a seat in the waiting area and wait to be called in for your procedure.

Visitors within the Purley Elective Centre

To help protect our patients and staff and to reduce the risk of someone bringing COVID-19 into hospital, we are not allowing visitors into the Purley Elective Centre. This means that unfortunately, you will not be able to bring family members or friends with you into the hospital. However, patients with learning disabilities who have a carer are permitted to bring one carer with them to hospital.
