The What? Why? Children in Hospital (WWCIH) charity was founded in January 2015 by Marit Boot who thinks it is essential to offer children and parents visual information to prepare them for hospital. The charity works in close partnership with the NHS and has filmed in the Royal Hospital for Children Glasgow, the Royal Hospital for Sick Children Edinburgh, Aberdeen Children's Hospital and Raigmore Hospital in Inverness to make videos to help children and parents prepare for hospital and answer some of their questions starting with What? and Why?
Parents can show these videos to their child before their appointment to help them understand what is going to happen in the hospital.
WWCIH is constantly adding new videos to their site so if you cannot find the video you are looking for below click here to the What? Why? Children in Hospital Website for videos, leaflets, news & events, as well as colouring pages for your child to print off and have fun colouring in.
