We developed the resource ‘Children Coming to Hospital’ with children and young people aged seven to fourteen years of age as part of our research work.

Our resource is made up of an animation and comic strip for children and young people, an animation for health professionals and a leaflet for parent/carers. The resource aims to make hospital visits better for children. The resource is free to download and use.
