The Patient's Experience

Our Patient's Experience series has been established as part of our commitment to patient centred care, and is designed as a supplement to the information that is supplied in other places on this website. The Patient's Experience series is about providing you with accurate information, that demystifies hospital procedures and processes, as well as to assist with reducing patient anxiety.
