The play team in Ninewells is looking forward to the annual Play in Hospital Week (8-14 October) with visits from the flying Jalapenos, Clown doctors, wordsearches and lots of fun.

The theme of this year’s event is Everyday Heroes: Celebrating Play in Healthcare in the 70th Year of the NHS, and the Ninewells team will be celebrating the work of everyone in paediatrics who works hard to improve children’s hospital experiences.

Play in Hospital Week aims to raise awareness of the benefits of play in the treatment of children across the UK. It is organised by the National Association of Health Play Specialists (NAHPS), which aims to promote and ensure the provision of appropriate therapeutic and stimulating play facilities in healthcare and Starlight Children’s Foundation, which brightens the lives of over half a million poorly children in the UK each year.
