This week’s national ‘Play in Hospital Week’ theme is ‘Power of Play’ and to celebrate the Royal Hospital for Children (RHC) has superheroes bringing ‘power’ to the patients and staff.
A whole week of play is planned for patients, and their families are being encouraged to join in. Patients can ‘find the superhero’ who are hiding in the main atrium, raid the crazy dress up box, meet Batman, and on Thursday Super Therapet, Skye, will be doing the rounds.
Also every day the play team will available in the main atrium providing information about the play service, how they support children in hospital through play and the team will also be running fun activities for patients, their families and staff.
Jamie Hepburn, General Manager, Paediatrics and Obestetrics, said: “Play is really important for children whether they are an inpatient or outpatient and our play team work extremely hard to provide appropriate play themes for our patients.
“Play in Hospital Week recognises the tremendous work they do on a daily basis supporting patient during what can often be a very difficult time.
“The activities throughout the hospital this week are supported by Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity and anyone visiting the hospital this week can expect to see ‘superheroes’ everywhere!!!”
