“Help make our Emergency Department a little more pleasant for our 12,000 child patients a year”

Imagine how daunting visiting a hospital emergency department can be. Now imagine how it can feel for a child.

Noisy and often filled with unfamiliar people and equipment, a trip to the Royal Bournemouth Hospital’s Emergency Department can be an alarming and stressful experience for any patient.

That’s why we want you to help us raise £5,360 to refurbish our Emergency Department with a new children’s waiting area.

By helping us raise funds to provide toys, comfortable seating, artwork, tables and decoration for children, you can make a trip to A&E a little more pleasant for babies, toddlers and infants.

A new refreshment stand and water cooler will also benefit those looking after them.

We are also fundraising to make similar improvements to Christchurch Hospital’s outpatients orthopedic waiting area.

Our hospital staff provide care for 12,000 paediatric emergencies a year from minor injuries through to critically ill children. You can see why this is such an important project.
