Family & Friends Information

If a friend or relative has asked you to help them get to and from City East Specialist Day Hospital for a procedure, you may be wondering what to expect.

As they will not be able to drive for at least 24 hours after surgery, and need someone to look after them so they can rest, you play an important role in this day.


We will advise them of the expected discharge time when they are admitted on the day of surgery. We have a comfortable waiting room area, or you can spend some time at the local shops or cafes. Tradewinds restaurant is directly opposite the surgery, there are many cafe's and Pacific Square shopping centre nearby, or a short drive will take you to Westfield Eastgardens.

Our Recovery Room staff will call you after the operation to confirm the anticipated discharge time.


They will need to rest at home for the remainder of the day. Please stay with them to make sure they do so. They should not plan to run errands or look after others on that day.

If you have any concerns about their recovery after the procedure, please call their doctor immediately.
