"A happy experience."

About: Kerang Hospital

(as the patient),

I am an elderly person. I had a biopsy on my upper lip at Kerang District Health. My first time being in an operating theatre. As I have an anxiety disorder the staff were very supportive and reassuring. They were excellent. That made my stay at Kerang District Health a happy experience.

Dear A happy experience,

I am very pleased to hear your story. As it was your first time going into theatre, and your acknowledgment of an anxiety disorder, and also being elderly I can only imagine how you must have been feeling in the lead up to your procedure.

Thank you for taking the time to write and tell us about this experience, and I will pass on your story to the theatre team, with my thanks for their consideration and their supportive care.

I hope you have made a full recovery.

Kind Regards
