Halton Hospital Urgent Care Children’s department wish to change the experience of every child entering our unit, at a time when a child is feeling at their worst due to being unwell or having been in an accident.
The existing clinical environment is frightening to a child and their families, and can further aggravate situations making treatment difficult.
We have an opportunity to change that through the Aviva Community Fund initiative, which offers people the chance to get funding for an important cause in their community.
Our vision is to create a warm and welcoming unit that demonstrates we are attune to their needs as well as reflects the passion we hold to deliver the best possible high quality care to the children and their families.
Presently we have a wonderful mural in our children’s waiting area, of which initially relax our young patients however the actual journey thereafter is what we wish to make better!
Within the paediatric unit we would like a dinosaur mural that is hand painted along the corridor leading into the treatment rooms.
There are two treatment rooms of which we wish to create two different themed designs:
- First treatment room will be designed as a distraction room – for babies and younger patients
- Second treatment room will be designed for older children
We would also like to provide distraction tools such as a Lava Lamp/ projection that projects stars or shapes onto the ceiling so young children or babies have a moving visual aid to distract them whilst receiving treatment.
