The environment in which children and teens receive medical care is pivotal in their overall well-being, comfort, and healing, which is why the Paediatric Areas Enhancement project is so important for Teddington Memorial Hospital.
Well-decorated paediatric areas can significantly enhance the experience of young patients, reduce anxiety, and promote recovery.

Current Condition of Paediatric Areas
Bland and Outdated Aesthetics
The current decor and seating areas need to be more varied and updated, for a more welcoming environment for children, teens, and their families.
Wear and Tear
Over time, wear and tear have made the paediatric areas appear worn out, diminishing their appeal and comfort.
The existing budget constraints have restricted previous updates as funding is focused primarily on medical excellence.
The Friends of Teddington Memorial Hospital is committed to supporting patient improvements beyond medical excellence provided as standard by our local NHS.
At the heart of the Paediatric Areas Enhancement project is the requirement to improve the patient experience of our community’s children and young people.
Benefits of the Paediatric Areas Enhancement Project

Studies suggest a positive environment can positively influence health outcomes by promoting a sense of calm and healing.

A redecorated area and aesthetically pleasing environment can facilitate improved care delivery, benefiting both staff and patients, uplifting the spirits of healthcare professionals, and leading to improved morale, job satisfaction and productivity.
