Had an operation with us? Tell us how we can help.

If you've ever been to The Children's Hospital at Westmead for an operation, you probably remember having lots of thoughts and feelings about the experience. Hopefully many of them were positive. But we also know that sometimes people might be nervous, a little scared or just not sure about things.

Perhaps looking back, there were things you wish you'd known about that would have made the experience better for you. We have launched a survey to learn more, so we can make things better for patients and families.

We want to help children and families prepare when coming in for an operation, so that everyone arrives feeling more confident, informed and aware of what to expect. That starts with the right information," said Co-Head Anaesthesia, Dr Andrew Weatherall. 

So, we would like to hear from you and by 'you' we mean children, young people and their families:

  • What did you wish you knew before you came in?
  • What is the best way for us to share that information with you?
  • What new and exciting things can we build together to help children and families prepare for their trip to the operating theatres?

Please help us by taking this short survey so we can make things better. Thank you!
