Glasgow Children's Hospital Charity saw the potential for Specialist Children's Services to build a website to share information, advice and strategies directly with the public. They supported the project by providing initial funding to build and populate the website.
Glasgow Children's Hospital Charity fundraise to ensure that every baby, child and young person treated at Scotland's largest children's hospital receives the extra special care they deserve. It sits firmly at the heart of the Royal Hospital for Children in Glasgow.

The KIDS Team attended the Scottish Holyrood's Annual Digital Health and Care Awards 2019, held at the Waldorf Astoria, Edinburgh. The awards recognise the achievements of individuals and teams working in the health and social care sector.
KIDS was one of four finalists for the 'Empowering Children and Young People Award' which recognise individuals and teams who are using digital to engage and support children and young people to improve their health and wellbeing, empowering them by improving access to self-support resources and services to make positive decisions about their health and wellbeing.
The NHS Scotland Event 2019 was held in the SEC, Glasgow on the 30th - 31st June 2019. The event is the leading health event in Scotland. In its 14th year, the Event continues to be the ‘premier meeting place’ for those committed to providing sustainable high quality health and social care services for the people of Scotland.
KIDS emerged as the winning poster for Transformational Change Category.
“This engaging poster demonstrates how a Community Paediatric OT Service embraced technological change to promote self-management and address demand pressures. Children, young people and their families were directly engaged in the design process. The positive the impact in terms of access, satisfaction rates and cost efficiency are clearly evidenced. It is great to see the innovative work described in this poster is paving the way for change across other service areas within Greater Glasgow and Clyde and more widely across Scotland.”
