01/09/2022 repro free Helium Arts, a national children’s charity, has launched its outpatients programme in University Hospital Galway. The outpatients programme supports children and young people, aged 6 - 18 years, managing lifelong health conditions, to access creative activities in outpatient clinics while they wait to see the doctor and nurse. A lifelong health condition is one which can be treated and managed but usually not cured. It can require regular visits to hospital outpatient clinic appointments.
Children and families can feel anxious or nervous about attending their hospital appointments. Professional artist, Yvonne Cullivan, is helping by designing bespoke creative activity packs and engaging with outpatients.. This helps to brighten the atmosphere of the waiting area and provide distraction and relieve stress for children and families.
