We would love every child to have a ‘put-up’ bed beside them to allow a parent or guardian to stay in comfort. It would be fantastic to provide toys and books and a variety of films to suit all children’s ages.
We want to make the wards, theatres, parent waiting rooms and day case areas child and family-friendly, too. We’d like to banish plain walls and provide suitable artwork to bring pleasure to patients and their families - and of course there’s the state-of-the-art medical equipment.
Please help us to make every child's stay in hospital with us brighter, better and happier.
