Henry Dancer Days

Storyteller Carmel Page writes…
“This is the team I work with for Henry Dancer Days Becky Beth and Isla making Ward 6 look beautiful.”The Ward 6 (Haematology and Oncology) team, with a little help from four year old Isla, celebrated bonfire night in one of their favourite ways – with lots of glittery artwork!

As well as clinical staff on the ward caring for our patients, we have dedicated play specialists who are a huge part of the care we provide at Sheffield Children’s. Isla and play specialists Beth and Becky made a wonderful display for the ward as one of the many activities they have all year round! For this session the play was arts and crafts based but play specialists provide toys, games, computers and organise other activities throughout the year for patients of all ages.

Play specialists provide inpatients and outpatients with play activities to prepare, distract and relax children and young people during their time here. Our dedicated team provide all sorts of play activities to help normalise the environment and it also provides a therapeutic aspect to their care.

Thank you for sharing your artwork Isla!
