Giggle Doctors feature in St George's Hospital newsletter

Our Giggle Doctors feature in By George to highlight Christmas Giggle Doctor visits...


We are absolutely thrilled to feature in an article in St George's Hospital's newsletter, By George.

The article talks about the importance of our Giggle Doctor visits and how they make a difference for children at at time when they need it most: 

 

"Giggle Doctors from Theodora Children’s Charity will be visiting patients in our paediatric wards throughout the festive period.

The Giggle Doctors, specially trained performers who use music, magic and storytelling to cheer up young patients in hospital, first started visiting St George’s in September this year.

Emily Swords, Chief Executive of Theodora Children’s Charity, said: 

"We all know how scary a stay in hospital can be and for children it is even worse. That is where our Giggle Doctors come in. They provide opportunities for fun and play helping children to feel like children again, not patients."

The Giggle Doctors visit hospitals throughout the year and look forward to helping the staff at St George’s bring some festive joy to the children this Christmas"
