Artwork gives 'different perspective' on young patients

An art exhibition by young patients depicting their experiences of hospital has been described as 'eye-opening' by staff working in the health sector.

Looking at the way the children have expressed themselves through their artwork gives us, as adults and clinicians, a very different perspective on what it’s like to be a young person in hospital.

We hope that this year’s art project has provided our young patients with an opportunity to express themselves through creative work and helped them feel more comfortable at what can be a worrying time in their lives.
