When children need emergency medical care it can be a very scary time for them and for their families. Strange surroundings, noises, people and equipment can affect how children cope with a visit to hospital and how they feel about it once they go home.
A tailored unit for children
By providing a calming, child-friendly environment we can help to relax and distract children of all ages so that their experience is the best that it can be. Our appeal will help to fund two interactive floor projectors for the waiting areas and sensory play wall fixed activity units in the waiting areas and assessment rooms.
We also want to purchase a piece of high-tech clinical equipment that the medical and nursing team will use to enhance the care that very poorly babies up to the age of three months attending the unit receive. It’s not an essential piece of kit, but it will make some procedures easier and quicker to carry out in an emergency.
We hope to reach our £40,000 target before the end of 2021, so we need your help now! If you would like to make a donation or do some fundraising for the appeal we would love to hear from you, please get in touch.

We are raising funds to enhance the environment and to purchase high-tech equipment for the paediatric unit within the Emergency Care Centre at Leighton Hospital. There is a small chance we will raise more than we need for this project. If this happens, or if for any unforeseen reason we are unable to purchase everything that we’ve set out within the appeal, your gift will still be used to benefit children (over and above basic NHS provision) who attend the unit.
Speak to us about getting involved today so we can make a difference tomorrow.
