"A good one"

About: Aberdeen Royal Infirmary / Radiology (X-rays and Scans) Royal Aberdeen Children's Hospital / Play Service

(as a service user),

When i was really really ill the play workers Sarah & Lindsey at ward 2 RACH Aberdeen came to me in isolation. I was so sad i was ill but also that i was in isolation and couldnt go to the play area. They gave me paint...paper..key rings to colour and models to paint..i got some dvds to watch and also once i was better i got play in the play area!!! 

The play specialists helped me when i had to have an ultrasound and an MRI. They made being in hospital so much less scary by being here. My mummy said you have helped me and her Sooooo much and we couldnt thank you enough xx We will donate some toys!

Dear StichZ


Sorry to hear you were really poorly and had to spend time in hospital. It can get really boring stuck in a room but sounds like the play team found lots of exciting things for you to do. I wish I could do the colouring in key ring one as that sounds great.

I hope you are feeling much better and are home now enjoying all the lovely sunny weather we are having playing outside.

Sarah and Lindsey will be really pleased to see what you have written and I will make sure they get a copy.
