Friendly faces come to Kingston Hospital's children's A&E
Kingston Hospital's paediatric emergency department welcomed the addition of some friendly faces to cubicle 5, thanks to generous funding from The Brothers Trust.
Emergency trips to hospital can be an incredibly frightening experience for children and, where possible, Momentum's mission is to improve these environments so that they are as child-friendly and welcoming as possible. We're extremely thrilled that, with the support of The Brothers Trust, we've now been able to create a sea-themed cubicle, complete with friendly faces on the wall, to welcome any little visitors in.
Bianca Effemey, Founder and CEO of Momentum Children's Charity reflects on the benefit of projects like this “Colourful wall art is such a valuable, and hugely impactful, way of distracting young patients from what may be a distressing or painful experience”
