This story is designed to reduce anxiety in children undergoing anaesthesia. This can be an anxious time for both children and carers a like. This story aims to give a flavour of what a child might expect when they visit hospital for an operation. It is amazing how perceptive children are and through the positive experiences of little Fred it is hoped that this book may better children’s experiences under similar circumstances.
