Children and Young People

Being in hospital can be a scary time for adults let alone children, which is why we want to make the experience as relaxing as possible for our young patients as well as their family and the staff treating them.

This year we are launching our Children’s Appeal to help transform more of our Children's Outpatient Departments into welcoming environments for the 120,000 young patients we see every year, during what can be a daunting time with repeat appointments.

We have already made a huge difference from ward refurbishments that have brightened up the wards where our young patients can stay for weeks at a time, whilst relieving stress for their family and a fantastic playground providing a fun and safe space for the children to play as part of their recovery from treatment.
