The Paediatric Unit at Calderdale Royal Infirmary treats over 8,000 babies and children each year. Often parents and siblings accompany children on the visits to hospital and wait while treatment is administered. A number of patients staying on the unit have additional needs and require stimulation during their time on the ward.

The unit has asked for our help to create a room that will provide both a quiet space for difficult and sensitive conversations between clinicians and parents and also offer a sensory and stimulating play area for patients and visiting children. The installation of sensory lighting, projected visual effects and activity wall panels will make a huge difference to their experience of hospital. A bubble tube, mirrors and some sensory toys will complete the room, which could also be used to calm and distract agitated patients.

The total cost of providing this equipment is £568.63.

“During winter months our admissions of children with respiratory conditions increase, so these saturation monitors are vital to us being able to safely monitor children. They will allow us to monitor more children both continuously through their stay with us and at intermittent times during their visit. Staff will find the additional units make their jobs easier.”
