Our Chief Executive talks about the Giggle Doctors on Radio City Talk's special programme, Mental Health Monday
Spending time in hospital can be really frightening for children, having a big impact on their mood and causing feelings of anxiety or boredom.
During Radio City Talk's special programme, Mental Health Monday, our Chief Executive Emily spoke about how the Giggle Doctor visits can help improve a child's mood. The Giggle Doctor visit improves a child's experience of hospital as Emily explained:
'The visit gives them a chance to just be a child, to play and have some fun and just be silly. The Giggle Doctors are able to facilitate that ... it just transforms the mood for the children and if the family are there as well it transforms everyone's mood'
