We are delighted that Mo and his woodland friends now adorn the walls of one of the Isolation Rooms on Ash Ward in St Peter’s Hospital. The beautiful, colourful images help make it a more child-friendly and welcoming place and is already proving to be a big hit with staff and patients alike. Lizzie Sturt, Oncology Nurse Specialist comments: “Our young oncology patients sometimes have to stay in a cubicle for weeks on end, not only at diagnosis but at any time during their cancer journey. Having a bright, colourful and cheerful room eases their stay in hospital and ultimately reduces their anxiety. This is crucial for building children’s resilience towards future medical interventions.”
