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.”

“The specialist treatment chairs are a new vital resource for the therapy team and nursing staff to be able to safely and comfortably sit extremely complex, dependant, critical care patients out of bed. The chairs allow us to begin the patient’s rehabilitation journey by providing appropriate postural support at the same time as pressure relief to allow the patient to build the muscle strength to hold themselves up against gravity. This allows them to begin to interact with their environment in a more normal way, enabling them to participate in meaningful activities such as meal times and activities of daily living.”
