Ward 30 Information App

Admission to hospital for anaesthesia and surgery is an anxious time for children, young people,  parents and carers.

A large amount of information in various forms is shared, from the details of the operation, length of stay and recovery to what to bring to the hospital.

While verbal information and leaflets have an important role to play, it was felt that an app to collate information in one place would be hugely beneficial, particularly given the widespread and growing use of smartphones.

Featuring family-friendly images, videos, infographics and links to other online resources, the app content was collated and approved by a range of staff, including nurses, play specialists, anaesthetists and surgeons.  As well as being easily updated, the app allows users to share their feedback.
