This area within the main A&E area at Kingston Hospital now has a beach scene, lovely colourful drawings of animals and some child-sized furniture. As this room is used by all age ranges from 0 to 18, the design has been carefully constructed to take this into consideration.

Any A&E area can be frightening to many children whatever their age, so to be able to provide a soothing environment to sit or play while the young patients can wait is a welcome addition to this very busy area.  Calm environment help create calm patients, which helps everyone provide the best care possible.

I would like to say a big thank you for the lovely decor provided for Paeds HDU in ED as well as Paeds UTC.  They look fantastic and very colourful.  Thank you for your continuous support.
