Information for Patients and Carers

Please be aware that the Riverside Treatment Centre has implemented single sex nursing bays to ensure privacy and dignity is respected for all our patients. For this reason we would ask you for your co-operation in maintaining our Second Stage Recovery Room as a 'patient only area'.

Patients are asked to advise staff of contact details so we can inform their relatives/carers of discharge times. Patients relatives/carers need to wait at the front reception on arrival.

If you wish to get a patient update at any time you can telephone 020 8333 3268.
