The play team in Tayside Children’s Hospital celebrated the annual Play in Hospital Week (7-11 October).

The theme of this year’s event is ‘Play for All’ and the Ninewells team celebrated the work of everyone in paediatrics.

Play specialist Una Paton said, “We held a fun day and invited staff from the children’s ward and other departments to come along and join in. It was a chance to see the provision for children in hospital and meet to the play team.

“It was very successful with prizes for our games including the Guess Who competition and quiz. Everyone who came along and participated in a game was given a goodie bag.”

The aim of Play in Hospital Week is 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) and Starlight Children’s Foundation.
