Whiston and St Helens Hospitals’ Charity supports our younger patients by providing specialist toys to reduce anxiety, distract patients during procedures before treatment and vital equipment to keep our babies comfortable.
To our Younger Patients Fund
We aim to lessen, if not alleviate, the suffering experienced by a child with the use of bright colours, wall art and imagery. Our new child-friendly waiting area will provide a relaxing, bright, inviting and healing space for them and help to establisha link between home and hospital. Every single penny you donate makes a real difference, as without your help we wouldn’t be able to provide all those special extras for our patients.
Wall Murals for the Special Care Baby Unit featuring children who have been cared for by the team and who have grown into health and happy people sharing a message of hope and positivity
Specialist Play Equipment to help occupy distressed children and keep their minds at ease before undergoing treatment

You can help us to provide better play equipment for our children in the Paediatric Ward and reduce their anxiety during procedures before treatment.
With your support, we can provide vital equipment to help our youngest patients feel more comfortable in our Special Care Baby Unit.
Thanks to the fundraising efforts of the Knit & Natter Group, we raised £992.80 for 10 incubator covers. These dampen light and noise for the baby, creating a peaceful environment, reducing cortisol and helping babies settle to sleep. This is just one of the many ways you can help.
