    Use of Tenses

    Dear Teachers,

    Could you tell me which of the following is correct in the use of tense?
    Please be informed that I have returned to the office at 3 p.m. after attending the medical appointment at XX hospital; or
    Please be informed that I returned to the office at 3 p.m. after attending the medical appointment at XX hospital.
    (Say, I wrote the above sentence at 3.15 p.m. the same day.)

    Please provide the answer with explanations. Thank you.
