Southampton Children’s Hospital Play Appeal

Play and distraction are important, but often underrated, elements in the treatment of poorly children.

Through play and exploration, the play therapists at Southampton Children’s Hospital support children and young people to make sense of what is happening in their treatment.

Often small treats will help encourage children undergoing blood tests and procedures, while portable equipment means that we can take play items to the patient’s bedside when necessary.

Together we can make a difference.
