Children Coming to Hospital

We developed the resource ‘Children Coming to Hospital’ with children and young people aged seven to fourteen years of age as part of our research work.

Read more about the project in our press release >>

Our resource is made up of an animation and comic strip for children and young people, an animation for health professionals and a leaflet for parent/carers.

The resource aims to make hospital visits better for children. 

The resource is free to download and use.

Our animation and comic strip for children has information about what may happen when children come to hospital for procedures such as scans, X-rays and blood tests.
