Music is proven to help reduce the impact of hospitalisation and illness, giving children the access to play and self-expression.
We would like to provide music therapy for our patients with brain injuries or who are unable to breathe independently, by providing live music to help relax and encourage children to communicate through music.
We would also like to expand the provision of music therapy in our Paediatric Emergency Department with a bespoke programme of music aimed at providing distraction from alarm sounds, medical equipment and children’s cries. We would also like to provide music therapy for patients participating in clinical trials in our Children’s Clinical Research Facility, to help provide additional physical and psychological support whilst children are undergoing treatments and investigations.
