What the hospital staff are saying

“These fun designs are an important part of our commitment to easing children’s fears of being in a seemingly strange and scary building, to instead create a warm and comfortable place of healing.”

– Sally Shearer, former Director of Nursing and Governance for Children at Barts Health NHS Trust
