We know that the thought of staying in hospital can be worrying and a bit scary, and we want to help reassure you.
Everybody at Evelina London cares about you and wants you to be comfortable during your stay there. As well as lots of really nice nurses and doctors to look after you, there are some fun things for you to do too. There are play rooms with lots of toys, and lots of different arts and crafts activities you can do from the comfort of your own bed.
Speaking of beds, you will have your own bed and there will be a pull up bed next to you, so mum or dad can stay too!
There are also people called play specialists who love to spend time playing with you. In fact you might meet lots of different people who want to have fun, like Diana our Cardiac Support Worker, or Cathy our Music Therapist – you can see Cathy introduce herself here.
