Your appointment

You may wish to wear comfortable clothing when you come for your appointments and you may like to bring something along with you to pass the time, such as a book to read.

Some people like to have company when they come to their appointments. Please check with the staff at Laurel House if you are allowed someone to attend with you. Please do not bring children to the unit as it can be distressing for other patients and distracting for staff.

There is tea, coffee and vending machines in the waiting area.  There is also a shop and a restaurant in the main building of Antrim Area Hospital.
