Attending hospital can be a distressing and anxious time for a child, especially for those whose treatments are unpleasant or cause discomfort and pain. We are providing a range of games and toys for children and young people at Nottingham Children’s Hospital to help distract them while staying in hospital or waiting for appointments. The resources will be used across all 12 wards and will benefit over 1,000 children each year.

Jamie-Lee Phillipson, Hospital Play Specialist says: “Our role is to normalize a child’s stay in hospital as much as possible, and the one thing all children and young people know how to do is play. So having good facilities really will help aid their recovery and help to create a positive experience for the duration of their stay.”
“Having a better range of toys and equipment to choose from equipment will not only keep children entertained whilst in hospital but will help us facilitate their care play programmes and help with their learning, development and recovery process.”

“Infections of the central nervous system need urgent and appropriate treatment. Most laboratory methods can take from 24 to 48 hours for diagnosis of bacterial meningitis and three to seven days for diagnosis of viral meningitis or encephalitis. The new equipment will mean we can get results of these tests in around an hour. We’ll be able to inform the clinicians of a positive result, allowing targeted therapy and reassurance to the patients and families. Just as important is the reporting of negative results, which may enable treatment withdrawal and possibly a shorter hospital stay.”
