"Appointment with Pre Operative Assessment"

About: Borders General Hospital / Pre-Operative Assessment Clinic

(as a service user),

I was anxious about my appointment as I am due to have surgery, My appointment was on time and introduced to nurse Angie, she was wonderful answered all my questions, made me feel reassured. I also saw a lovely junior doctor and finally the anaesthetist all of them were so reassuring and kind. Thankyou all for taking an interest, feel less anxious than before I attended
