New Resource: Going To Hospital

New Resource: Going To Hospital

We’ve added Going To Hospital to the Easy Health website. Going to Hospital has been created by Royal Cornwall Hospitals NHS Trust and Cornwall Down’s Syndrome Support Group.

Going to Hospital helps children and young people with a learning disability or autism to communicate about attending hospital. The book can be used to interact with families, carers and health professionals and gives more understanding of what may be experienced during an appointment or admission.

The makers of the resource say: “We believe clear accessible information and good communication are key to reassuring children and young people with a learning disability or autism when planning hospital visits. It is our hope that providing Going to Hospital as a free resource will open conversations and help to alleviate some anxieties associated with medical procedures.”
