Patients aged five and under requiring ENT (ear,nose and throat) surgery can now drive their own personal car into theatre independently, relieving mum and dad's fears while making a visit to hospital less scary.
The brainchild of Gosford Private Clinical Manager, Mandy Akamarmoi, this initiative builds on Gosford Private Hospital's patient experience charter where every patient matters.
"At Gosford Private, we're always focused on how we can make each patient experience the best it can be.
For our younger patients, feeling in control and being accompanied by happy parents is key. An added sense of fun helps to promote a positive experience overall" says Mandy.
