Hospital bosses in Sheffield are considering plans which could see them pioneering the NHS across the world. The Government's picked Sheffield Children's Hospial as among Britain's best - and they want to use its staff to show other countries the type of service the NHS offers.

A design for the new wing at the Sheffield Children's Hospital has been chosen.

It will include a circular play tower in the main reception, which will go from floor to ceiling.

£40m is being spent on on the new wing and building work should start in spring 2013 and is aimed to be completed by spring 2015.
