The Children’s Outpatients Department at King’s College Hospital has been transformed using artwork donated by Corpus Christi Primary School.
The students based their wonderful artworks on London landmarks including the Shard, the Natural History Museum, the London Eye, St Paul’s Cathedral, and the Chelsea Flower Show.
Matron of Children’s Ambulatory Services, Laura Duffell, said “the Outpatient Department is the heart of child health at King’s. Every single speciality utilises this area, and every child with a chronic illness who has been admitted to any of our departments knows Outpatients well.
We are incredibly proud to fund the installation of this wonderful project, and to be part of this triumphant collaboration between staff, patients, families, and our local community.
Having a bright and colourful area will transform the experience of every single child and young person we see. It will also lift staff’s morale and pride around where they work, and what they achieve every day.”
This project was a winning submission to the Crown Fund: a programme for funding smaller scale projects designed to attract exciting and impactful initiatives across our hospitals. Departments, wards and specialties were invited to share their project ideas for up to £25,000 to conduct small-scale innovations that have the potential to make a big difference to patient outcomes and experience.
