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 new beds for parents have had such a positive impact on the wellbeing of our children knowing their parent or carer is close by. But also for the parent being able to sleep comfortably next to their child has made such a difference to how they have responded to staff during difficult times on the ward. The difference a good night’s sleep makes is priceless.”
