Date of Breath Donation

31 October 2019

My relationship to Royal Hobart Hospital

/ Why I’m here today

I am a sufferer of PAH (pulmonary arterial hypertension) and the clinic for this is here at Cardiology. When I come here I do a monitored 6 minute walking test and once a year I have an echocardiogram before seeing the heart specialist.

What I love about the RHH Community

/ or hope for it

I appreciate that the services are here to treat my health condition. I would hope that a community didn't have such long waiting periods to be seen. But I know that once you pass through the emergency doors, help is there.

Something I’m personally hoping for right now

That we have more beds available and quicker outpatient services. I hope the future will fulfil our needs.
