Young patients at a Nottingham hospital are taking delivery of a fleet of scooters today as part of a plan to make operations seem less scary.
In total six micro-scooters are being donated to the Children's Hospital at the Queen's Medical Centre. The idea is to allow the children to scoot to the operating theatre - making the prospect of surgery less daunting.
Staff also believe it will help youngsters with their rehabilitation, and keep them active if they have to stay in hospital for lengthy periods of treatment.
Two Micro Sprites are also being donated to help staff get around the hospital more speedily.
