Children’s Outpatients at Burnley General Hospital treats around 30,000 babies, children and young people per year. The department has recently been refurbished to make it a more child friendly environment but budget constraints did not allow for toys and activity equipment to complete the upgrade. The staff have now asked MedEquip4Kids to provide the items required which includes toddler walkers, baby dolls, puzzles and an activity panel. A treatment chair and some small medical devises are also needed.

Young patients are often distressed and confused by clinical settings and may feel anxious before medical procedures, so it’s important to offer age-appropriate resources to distract and entertain them while they wait to be seen. It’s easier for medical staff to treat children if they arrive in a more relaxed state of mind and it can prevent them from developing fears around future hospital appointments.

This equipment will help to calm and soothe children during their time in the Outpatients department and will greatly enhance their hospital experience.

The total cost of funding this project is £6,108.84

“The contribution of two Acheeva work stations has enhanced what we can offer to many children and students. Two young men are now able to access the larger workstations and their care and quality of life has improved dramatically. Michael now has the extra-large learning station available every day. Please thank everyone on our behalf who raised the money.”
