NEWS & EVENTS



Giggle Week

University Hospital Lewisham recently celebrated their very own Giggle Week to highlight the importance of the Giggle Doctor visits.


To celebrate International Day of Happiness on 20th March, University Hospital Lewisham celebrated their very own Giggle Week. The purpose was to highlight their Giggle Doctor programme and the smiles that have been made possible since 2013. 
 
Each year Giggle Doctors like Dr Snug, Dr Whooppie and Dr Dotty visit over 600 poorly children at University Hospital Lewisham each year. The Giggle Doctors are a valuable part of the incredible care team at the hospital and love visiting the children and their families to offer smiles and laughter during difficult times. 
 
We are so touched that the hospital decided to celebrate Giggle Week and grateful for their support. Many thanks go to everyone who helped to organise this event and who took part to make it such a success.
 
Sharon Justice, Senior Play Specialist at University Hospital Lewisham: 
“The Giggle Doctors are fantastic. They give the children, and their families, such a lift. It’s great to see them all having fun and it really helps take the kid’s minds off being in hospital and brightens their day. It’s also a great example of how the Trust use our charitable funds and we’d like to thank everyone who contributes towards such a positive experience for our patients”.
