We are the largest Paediatric Hospital in Scotland, and our theatre department cares for approximately 16,500 children every year. These children are having a mix of elective and emergency surgery, in a wide range of specialties.
Going for surgery can be a very stressful time for the child and their parents/carers. It is our priority to look after these children safely and to alleviate their stress as best we can. We want them to have an overwhelmingly positive experience that they go back to school and boast about! Your donation can help improve our theatre suite to make it a low stress, calming and fun environment for children and their families coming in for operations & procedures.
