Enhancement of the Children’s Radiology Department - £145,000 raised

Thanks to the support of our donors we have been able to introduce therapeutic and interactive themed artwork throughout the hospital’s radiology unit to make it less intimidating for the patients that visit for the various types of scan and treatment.  Having a CT scan can be very frightening for a child, who has to stay still in a confined environment for a long time while the scan takes place. 

We have been able to make the room where the CT scans take place child-friendly, allowing children to relax more easily and provide more distraction.  We have done this by using artwork and a space theme to link the whole department, from reception to examination rooms, creating an interesting and exciting environment which helps patients to feel much more comfortable thereby working towards a more productive patient experience.
