Teddy Bear Hospital is part of a national scheme for primary school children
We run regular events for 4-7 year olds. The children bring along their sick teddies and participate in interactive stations to cure their teddies! Our expert ‘Teddy Doctors’, who are volunteer medical students, run the stations to teach the children about topics ranging from healthy eating to surgery and X-rays.
The events are really fun and we hope to teach the children about visiting the doctor and healthy living, whilst reducing their anxiety about going to the doctors. They get to dress up as paramedics, put plaster casts on their teddies and even perform teddy surgery! It’s also great fun for the Teddy Doctors and a brilliant way to improve your communication skills with children – perfect for Paediatrics.
