Play Team

Nominated for Team of the Year

Torbay & South Devon

“The play team are a vital integral cog in the paediatric service. Their reach and contribution is vast across the organisation and yet often their positive impact goes largely under the radar.- although we definitely miss them when they are not around!
They are so skilled at working their magic with worried, anxious CYP and carers; equipping and empowering CYP to feel able to cope and have a voice – their impact will go beyond the moment, especially with CYP with long term conditions.
Their boundless enthusiasm and cheer is a joy and they definitely don’t ‘just blow bubbles!’

These girls always go above and beyond and I feel I need more recognition of the awesome work they do. The support they provide to the nursing team with patients is incredible. Without there support and ability to distract patients are job would be so much harder. But they also are there for the parents too. They need the recognition they deserve ”
