I know that our young people will benefit so much from having it. The fact that it can be moved into the children’s bedrooms is just brilliant and gaming can be such a good distraction and source of pleasure for so many people.

Just wanted to check in as Kirsty and I went up to the Children’s ward yesterday. The play specialists said the gaming units are really popular with the children and are always booked out! I’m sure you’ll agree this is amazing feedback and shows the units are having such a positive impact on Children’s stay in hospital!

The Mobile gaming station is a great conversation starter. New patients love telling me about the games they play at home and love showing me how to play the games on the mobile gaming unit. It brings people together. The Mobile Gaming Unit is a great form of distraction. It has calmed anxious patients on numerous occasions.

These games consoles are such an amazing distraction for children awaiting surgery or receiving treatment …Fifi LOVES the Lego game on this – she smiles and laughs when she’s surfing on a pig’s back – I’ve wheeled it into her room a few times when she’s “board” on an evening and it makes her happy x.
On the 4th September 2017, Fifi was happily playing this whilst we felt sick with apprehension at the biopsy surgery.
The most important thing is the kids smiling and being happy and Reece’s family have done a fabulous thing in their son’s name xx
